Cocoa Chipotle Salsa

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4-5 cups 1x


Add a subtle cocoa kick to some delicious chipotle salsa!


  • 2 lb. tomatoes (I used roma)
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 jalapeno, stemmed and seeded*
  • 1/4 cup chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (or one 3.5 oz. can)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until blended.  Serve or refrigerate up to one week.


*If you do not like spicy salsa, I would recommend leaving out the jalapeno and just starting with one or two chipotle peppers, and then add more of either to taste.
