Last night, Michael came home and immediately got out the cutting board and started dicing onions. There were still grocery bags in his hands, some of which had our dinner in it and milk that needed to be put away. I looked at him and then at the bags, “Uh hello? What are you doing?”
“I’m making salsa.”
“For work. We’re having a salsa-off.”
At first I was annoyed. I had just (JUST) finished cleaning the kitchen. But then, I tried his concoction. I think it’s safe to say this is the best salsa I’ve ever had.
I have no idea where he got the recipe, or if he just made it up as he went along. I’m thinking he made it up, since he loves adobo peppers like no one else. He told me what went in it via text this morning:
4- 14 oz can diced tomatoes (get the “hot” kind)
1 small, white onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced (after we tried it, we decided it needed garlic)
3 chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce (this is basically Michael’s favorite thing on earth)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Bunch on cilantro, chopped (who really know what a bunch means? He threw a LOT in there)
juice of 1 lime
Throw it all in a blender and blend in batches until it’s the consistency you want: chunky or smooth. It’s spicy but not overly spicy and the adobo peppers give it a smoky taste. This is my new favorite salsa ever.
Is it weird to have chips and salsa for breakfast? I wish I was joking.
