Brown Tomato Chipotle Salsa

Salsa with a Ghoulish Presence: Brown Tomato Chipotle Salsa

Brown tomatoes create a darker salsa for a more sultry presence. We chose to serve it with blue corn tortilla chips to continue the serious mood, and to conform to the orange and black theme of this Halloween party. Removing the seeds from the tomatoes makes for a chunkier, and less wet salsa, and much nicer to eat.

MAKES ABOUT 2 CUPS

GRAB A NICE SHARP KNIFE…

5 brown tomatoes
1 can of chipotle peppers, chopped, adobo sauce reserved
juice of half lime
2 TB cilantro, chopped finely

To create nice little tomato chunks, cut a slice off the top, then cut in half, scoop out the seeds with a spoon, and flatten. In a bowl, mix in chipotles, lime juice, and cilantro. Depending on how spicy you want it, add adobo sauce incrementally.
