Beautiful! I only made this to mix 2 spoons worth through a mexican burger I was making - we demolished the leftovers with some plain crisps - it was soooooo tasty! Didnt have lime juice or coriander so used lemon juice and basil. Delish! Excellent! Making again next weekend with a platter of nibbles to scoop it up with! Hubby loved it and asked me to make it again today! Will never buy shop bought salsa again!

I like a few of you fellow foodies have found it dificult to get my hands on the Chipotle paste, but I do have an alternitive way to get something similar to the taste. I bye the long red chillys you can get your hands on in most suppermarkets. simply roast these off with the red peppers and tomatoes, then skin them if you wish but i leave the seeds in for the "heat" kick. Hope this helps.

Very good, reminds me of the Red Pepper Dip you can get at Nandos as a starter - but with a bit more of a kick.

Took me a while to find the paste though, but worth the wait.

Really yummy recipe which never seems to last long on the table - good job it only takes minutes to make more! Chipotle en adobo (chipotle paste) can also be found on-line on Mex Grocer website - they also stock a wide range of other mexican food goodies too. Also really great to use to make nachos with tortilla chips and cheese.

You can order the chipotle paste directly from the Discovery website if you don't have a waitrose!

Yummie -
I asked a guy in a chilli farm about chipotle chillis as I hadn't seen any seeds/etc to be able to grow them. Apparently it's not a type of chilli, but at the end of the season when there are red jalapeno chillis left over and they're no longer in tip top form, they are smoked. So, they tend to be dried and brown.
Hope this helps.

Thomas1 - the one I have is part of the 'Discovery' range and I found it in Waitrose.

The recipe is fab... as DGrant said you definitely need to deseed the tomatoes otherwise it does go too watery. Also I would suggest cutting everything up rather than blitzing it, otherwise you may end up with a puree if your not too careful!

Can anyone suggest where to buy chipotle paste ? I`ve tried my two local supermarkets and they don`t stock it.

Had this as an accompaniment with a BBQ. - really good, great flavours with a nice kick - Might remove seeds from toamatoes next time as it turned quite watery.
