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.
Fresh made salsa in like 30 seconds. You can’t make this stuff up people.
So cozy up on the couch with someone special, turn on the game, and devour your homemade chipotle salsa.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for about a week in the fridge.
