1 (28 ounce) can
green bell pepper, diced
minced red onion
minced fresh cilantro
adobo sauce from canned chipotle peppers
chopped fresh tarragon
I was very pleasantly surprised by this salsa. It was flavorful and very fresh tasting. My husband and I both scarfed this down and he can't stand green peppers. The only change I made was a little dried tarragon because I didn't have any fresh. Next time I may use a little more adobo sauce to spice it up a little more.
The tarragon in this salsa makes it taste weird, and not in a good way.
Very easy recipe to make! My husband loved it, and he has tried tons of salsa recipes. Has a very unique flavor.
This salsa on a hot day is irresistable. Its uniquely wonderful! Everyone in my family loves it.
I used a sweet white onion and added a little lime juice. Everyone at the party really loved it!
Good recipe but a knockoff, not original....this has been used by my friends for ages.
Adobo Herb Salsa Haiku: "Increased cilantro. And I dropped the tarragon. Nice adobo kick!" I love the smoky bite and spicy aftertaste that the adobo sauce gave this salsa; I didn't deviate from the recipe, except to scale it to half, so that I only had to use a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes. The longer it sits in the fridge, the tastier it gets, so aim for more than the recommended 30+ min. Simply scooped up onto tortilla chips, this is a tasty, and easy, alternative to store-bought salsa. (Oh, and as a random side note, once you open the can of chipotles to measure out the adobo sauce, the perfect sized container for what's remaining in the can is a leftover Spice World 8 oz. jar of minced garlic.)
Excellent! I love the adobo addition! Adds such a great flavor. I didn't have fresh tarragon and so I used dried instead. I would definitely recommend this!
