This salsa is perfect. The smokiness of the roasted tomatoes with the richness and spice of the chipotles is perfect. This is my staple salsa recipe now.

This is a wonderful salsa and very versatile. I usually double to keep one recipe chunkier for salsa and puree then cook the other portion for huevos rancheros.
