Chipotle Tomatillo Salsa

Chipotle Tomatillo Salsa

This is one of the most beloved salsas that I've made over the years. It's never been served without my family and others raving over it and asking for the recipe.

The complex flavors it embodies -  smokey, sweet, tart, hot, and salty - is one reason why, I believe, people enjoy it so much. And the texture is marvelous also, thanks to the tomatillos.

Serve it with chips for a great appetizer or as a garnish for tacos and other Mexican fares.

Jesus Christ has been my Savior since 1975. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 48 of those years. We have five grown children, with children of their own. Of course, that means that we have grandchildren - ten to be exact, and nine great-grandchildren with another one on the way. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
