Roasted Tomato Salsa with Chipotle Peppers

More than a year ago, I ate a chipotle sauce at Sancho’s in Bangalore. The sauce was really good and I wanted to recreate that dish. Since I could not get my hand on chipotles, I never got to trying it. I cannot remember the exact taste of the dish or even what the exact dish was, except that it was exceptionally good and I remember trying to get every drop of sauce off the plate.
The other day, I found chipotle in adobe sauce in a store. I had one heirloom tomato from the farmer’s market and I used three of the store bought tomatoes. I made this salsa adding things as I went to improve the taste. I called my son to taste, he had this expression “no way it could be this good”. I had to write it down quickly, so I will not forget what I added. This would go well with chips, on tacos, fajitas, with chapati; I suppose with anything! this is lip smacking good! Try it! 

4 medium sized tomatoes

2-3 cloves garlic

2-3 tbsp coriander/ cilantro

3 pieces chipotle in adobo sauce (You could substitute with 3 red chillies or ½ -1 tbsp chilli powder, 1 tsp cider vinegar, 1 tsp tomato puree and  ½ tsp of cumin powder)


Roast tomatoes and garlic in the oven at 400º F (200º C) for 20-25 minutes

Peel skin off.

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend.

Add salt to taste

Serve with chips, veggies, or as you please
