Chipotle Salsa (Hot Salsa)

Here’s my take on Hot Chipotle Salsa Recipe. I think you’ll love it.

I absolutely love a good salsa. I'm more of a spicy hot salsa kinda girl and lately I have been loving this chipotle salsa recipe. It's the one I made with some leftover chipotle pepper and since then fell in love with hot kick of this salsa. 

I find this salsa great for entertaining, really a perfect crowd-pleaser. Anyone who loves spicy-smokey dips and chips falls in LOVE with it. From my past experience, I can already tell you.. You will get SO many requests for recipe and will see empty bowl very quickly. :) Be Ready!

Oh, and good news! It is a blender salsa! No need to chop a thing! Just grab a blender and welcome guests with scrumptious bowl of Spicyyy Salsa and Chips!

Let's dig in!

You guys! We are going Mexican this week! With labor day long weekend approaching, I'm giving you some great options to include in Labor Day Menu!! Starting today with this hot salsa.

Oh, and this salsa is very close to Chipotle Mexican Grill's Red Salsa recipe! Honestly, I should say, it is even better and fresh tasting than Chipotle's Red sals...
