Smoky Tomato-Chipotle Salsa

Total Time10 mins


  • 6 Heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion diced
  • 3 chipotle peppers more or less depending on desired spiciness
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste


  • Clean tomatoes, remove stem, then gently cut an X on the bottom of the tomatoes. Heat a large pot of water until boiling. Add the tomatoes and boil for 10-15 seconds. Remove from water and put into an ice bath. Once the tomatoes have cooled, gently peel off the skin.
  • Place tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, onion, chipotle peppers, lime juice, cumin, oregano, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper in a food processor or blender. Puree until thoroughly mixed. Taste and re-season if necessary. Letting it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours lets the flavors combine and makes the salsa taste even better. Enjoy!
