Chipotle Pepper and
Pineapple Salsa

In this salsa we have a combination that the Mexicans like a lot because they love to mix fruit with chili and enjoy it as snack – and as proof of this combination we have the salad in a glass.

– We already know that this recipe is not a snack, it consists of a salsa... but the mixture of fruit with chili is also delicious in a salsa.

What we are going to do in this combination is to take advantage of the chili’s hotness and complement it with the sweetness of the pineapple; this mixture of such different flavors generate a unique result. And to give seasoning to the salsa it will also have a smoky touch. It is a different salsa but we are sure that you will love it with some pork ribs or it can also be tasted on a beef.
