For Medium Salsa:
In the pitcher of a blender, layer in the ingredients: tomatoes and all their juices, onion, bell pepper, cumin, chipotle chili, adobo sauce, jalapeños, garlic, lime, salt and cilantro. For chunky salsa, pulse only a few times. For a thinner sauce, pulse longer. Pulse until desired consistency is reached. Adjust salt to taste.
Pour into a lidded storage container. Refrigerate for at least an hour before sharing to let the flavors marry. Refrigerate for up to four days.
*For a looser salsa, use crushed fire roasted tomatoes. It's not as chunky as diced tomatoes, but makes a fine salsa.
**Red/purple onions tend to be spicer than white, so for a milder salsa, go with white onion.
***If not much of a cilantro fan (some say it tastes like soap) only add a few springs. I add a lot, because I love it. But the amount is completely to taste. Play with it and see what you like best!
