MIX and TASTE


  1. Add broiled items to food processor or mixer, add 3 chipotle peppers, canned tomatoes, 1 tsp of green chilis, lime juice, salt and pepper.

  2. Mix and taste, decide if you want to add more smoke flavor by adding 1-2 more chipotle peppers

  3. Add more chilis or the jalapeno if you like more spice
