This recipe is very close to one of my favorite Mexican Restaurant's. Loaded with fresh tomatoes, peppers and onions it is great with everything. The charred veggies and chipotle peppers add an amazing smoky flavor. You may want to double the recipe. I like to make it in small batches to have fresh. You can adjust the heat down by adding less peppers. Enjoy!

How To Make

  • 1
    Char your bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, and serrano peppers. I have a gas stove so I just use tongs and hover the veggies over the flames. An outdoor grill works well for this too and adds amazing flavor. Cut off stems from peppers and ends of tomatoes.

    Add charred veggies to a food processor. Add water with bouillon, chipotle pepper with sauce, cilantro, lime, garlic, and spices. Pulse until desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
