    Rich, dark salsa with some heat. Worth the time to make this.

    I really liked this recipe - super easy to throw together (especially if you use canned chipotles) and very smoky. Will definitely use this again when having guests over. Wrote it up on my blog: http://www.thekitchenchronicles.com/2015/08/28/roasted-tomatillo-chipotle-salsa/

    This salsa is very easy to make, just allow for time for the tomatillos to roast and the chipotles to rehydrate if you are using dried. My salsa ended up being a thick puree with a particularly strong smoky flavor (I think I may have come close to burning the dried chipotles while toasting them). It was pleasantly spicy, but not overwhelmingly so, and pairs very well with other salsas, guacamole, etc.
