I’m obsessed with the Roasted Garlic Chipotle Salsa at Trader Joe’s. It’s smoky and garlicky in all the right ways. It’s one of my favorite snacks alongside limy tortilla chips. Yum!
I created my own homemade version of TJ’s salsa with delicious results! Mix up the tomato blend for variety in flavor. Play with the texture by how much you process the ingredients. The flavors gets better overnight so make it a day ahead to allow the flavors to “marinate”.
I love serving my Roasted Garlic Chipotle Salsa on a snack platter with homemade taquitos, chips, guacamole and cucumbers.
Roasted Garlic Chipotle Salsa
- 12-16 small garden tomatoes
- 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt or more to taste
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the tomatoes and garlic cloves on a baking sheet. Drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Roast for about 30-40 minutes until the tomatoes slightly burst and are juicing.
Transfer the tomatoes along with their juices into a blender or food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse until you get the salsa to your desired consistency.
Refrigerate the salsa for at least an hour before serving.
