DescriptionI don’t know about you, but I just love chipotle peppers. I’ll put this salsa on everything from eggs to a steak, and everything in between. This recipe is just so flavorful. I want to hear your thoughts!


  • 1/2 pound tomatillos, cut into strips
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chiles, finely chopped (canned ok)
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  • As always with tomatillos, soak in some hot water for about 10 minutes to help remove the husks.
  • Once the husks are removed rinse under tap water.
  • In a medium bowl, combine tomatillo, chiles, onion, cilantro, lemon juice, lemon zest, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Cover and refrigerate, at least 1 hour and better a day or two, to allow the flavors to mix.
