Smoky Salsa Roja

Smoky Salsa Roja

The smoky flavor of the fire-roasted tomatoes fits in here, but regular tomatoes would be good, too. This goes great with our beer-braised brisket.

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo, chopped, plus 1 tsp. adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 14.5-oz. can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon robust-flavored (dark) molasses

Recipe Preparation

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent and golden brown around the edges, 8–10 minutes.

  • Add chipotle chile, adobo sauce, and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until they are slightly darkened, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook, stirring, until liquid is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

  • Let cool slightly, then transfer to a blender. Add vinegar and molasses and blend until smooth; taste, and season with salt and pepper.

  • DO AHEAD: Salsa can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

Found this when looking how to use up the rest of my chipotle in adobo after cooking Our site's Vegetarian Chili. I did sub brown sugar for molasses. Will make again!AnonymousAtlanta, GA04/17/20This was delicious! I also made a version where I swapped chipotle with same volume gochujang, and it was also delicious!!
