Homemade Chipotle Salsa // Blendtec Giveaway

We are all pretty dang excited about today’s post and the recipes that will be coming this week.  This week is all about Blendtec.  It’s no secret that around here we loooooove our Blendtecs!  A few years back my husband told that I could either buy a Blendtec or a designer purse for my birthday…and I chose the Blendtec!  I have never looked back.  I use mine at least once every day, and usually multiple times a day.
Many people think that blenders are only for making green smoothies, but I’m here to tell you that is just scratching the surface.  I use mine to chop onions, shred cooked meats, mix cake mix, make soups, mix pancake mix, scramble eggs, and one of my favorites – make salsa!

Today I want to share with you my easy peasy homemade chipotle salsa. One of the things I love about eating at a place like Baja Fresh or Rubios is the Chipotle Salsa.  I love smooth, pureed salsa with lots of flavor and kick.  This salsa recipe is just that!  My husband loved this stuff and requested that it be made again – that is always a good sign!  I also love making Desi’s villa villa salsa salsa.  It’s for sure a favorite around our house!

 Today we are giving away a brand new Blendtec Designer Series 625.  One of our lucky readers will soon be whipping up fresh salsa in their new Blendtec.  The winner will be able to select which color they would like to coordinate perfectly with your kitchen decor.
I can’t describe to you my love for this machine.  I love that is fits under my cabinets on my counter so it is at arms reach all the time.  And I love that it has changed the way I cook.  I feel like I should be a Blendtec salesman in my next life because I am always talking about mine to my friends.  Blendtec is unique in the fact that they have a strong dull blade…so you never have to worry about cutting yourself.  They also have an amazingly strong motor that will result in Jamba Juice textured smoothies, and perfectly pureed salsas.
I love the 5 sided jar!  It basically eliminates the need to scrape the sides.  It’s also a cinch to clean.  A drop of soap, a cup of water, and a few pulses and you’re done.

Let me give you the run down on this salsa – which by the way will be perfect for all of your March Madness watching this month.

I love fresh made salsa!  It’s so much better than the jarred kind…and its so darn easy with the Blendtec – just toss everything in and blend until smooth!  If you like your salsa’s a little chunkier just pulse to the desired consistency.

  1. This salsa recipe is making my mouth LITERALLY water. The fire roasted tomatoes and adobo are a nice variation to my usual recipe. Yum.

  2. this salsa looks so good! My husband lived in Mexico for two years, and always complains that my salsa isn’t “authentic”, haha! This one looks authentic. ;) Also, that teal blender (and the lime one!) are rad.

  3. OH MY GOSH the new Blendtec is SO PRETTY! It looks so deliciously 1950’s. ;-)

    I love your recipes, particularly the omelette ones.

  4. We love salsa and tomatillo salsa is a favorite but this one looks so delicious. I am picking up the ingredients for it tomorrow – it is going on the menu.

  5. I can’t decide between the pomegranate or the seafoam. I think I need both!!! I’ll use the pomegranate during the autumn/winter months and the seafoam in spring/summer.
    I can see why Jim made you choose between the blender or the designer purse Kadee! Excellent choice!!!

  6. I love making salsa but have never thought to do it in my blender! Duh! Lol have to use this recipe next time! Thank you!

  7. I think I originally found this blog by looking up how to cook the perfect steak and loved it so much that I began to follow via facebook and other social media outlets. Since then I have made y’all’s stuffed shells quite a few times and just recently tried the omlet in a bag. Love how healthy, easy, and yummy your recipes are!

  8. This salsa looks amazing! It would go good with the roasted sweet potato and black bean taco recipe on your site which is one of my favorites!!!

  9. I can’t wait to try this salsa! We haven’t found a commercial kind that we love, so I would love to be able to just whip some up!

  10. I’m all for easy and fast, so the salsa recipes are my favorite! Although it would be even easier and faster with the Blendtec…fingers crossed :)

  11. Since I am from California, all of my children and Hubby were exposed to Mexican food from the get-go. Sauza around here is like nectar of the heavens! So this recipe is definitely one I want to add to my arsenal.

  12. Going to try this and give my family a choice of red or green. The Roasted Tomatillo Salsa – Green Salsa would be the other salsa.

  13. would love to win a Blendtec, so I will be able to save lots of times making salsa and etc.etc. I guess I will have to make this salsa the old way for now. thanks for the recipe

  14. Hi,
    I love Homemade Chipotle Salsa recipe especially because of tomato, lime, cilantro ingredients whose combination is always like heaven :)

    thank you.

  16. I just love your salsa recipe! And the bonus is that you can just throw all the ingredients in the Blendtec!! What a great product, and a yummy salsa! :) ty

  17. The salsa recipe is making my mouth water!

    I would love to get the black one to make my own salsa with!! :)

    Thank you!

  18. Left a comment on your Bob’s Guacamole recipe post…that would pair well with this salsa…and a new Blendtec :)

  19. I must make your Apple bundt cake with the cinnamon cream cheese glaze tomorrow! I am going to not be home for a couple of days this weekend and I have to leave something for the hubby to appreciate me for! LOL That looks so good.

  20. In answer to the question of which Blendtech am I drooling over? Since the subject is the designer series…I’m crazy for the red one.

  21. Your salsa recipe is very close to mine. But I have not tried it with chipotle peppers but I will need to try that! Thanks for the chance to win that teal Blendtec!!

  22. My favorite way to eat salsa – smeared on a baked potato and topped with sour cream.

    I would love to have a blendtec someday!

  23. This recipe is what I love! I have been wanting a blender for so long just so I can make stuff like this. And, because all the times watching Rick Bayless on tv. How I love Mexican cuisine.

  24. Your salsa recipe definitely sounds better than mine and is one I definitely have to try! Love the adobo and fire roasted tomatoes. It’s my favorite, right now!

  25. This looks amazing, I have been wanting a Blendtec for awhile now and your recent posts are pushing me closer to splurging!

  27. I’ve never made salsa with chipotle before but this looks amazing! I’m going to try this next time I make salsa :)

  28. As soon as I got to your page I couldn’t believe all of the wonderful foods and recipes. The pics are fantastic! I’m sure they taste just as wonderful! I want to try cauliflower pizza for sure. I’ve seen this on The Doctors also! Your ice cream bars like mango carrot were also great. I need to find a healthy desert. The eggs and tortillas looked great! everything…!! I’m a fan and want your emails!

  29. I love Mexican food! I definitely love the roasted red pepper enchiladas with homemade tortillas. I would eat those and this salsa all up. Making my mouth water right now.

  31. I left a comment on your white chocolate raspberry cheesecake recipe. So good! You have so many delicious looking recipes!

Salsa is one of my favorites and the salsa you made looks of my favorite recipes of your lately has been the Tropical Green Smoothie. Its my go to- O and I drink this like 4 days a week!

  33. This looks similar to my salsa recipe, except for the addition of chipotle peppers – I’ll have to try this one next time! Looks great!
