Chipotle Herb Ketchup

Makes 2 cups


1 cup basic ketchup recipe or 1 cup store bought ketchup
1 6 oz. can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 small jalapeño, chopped and seeds removed
½ cup white onion, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped fine
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
juice and zest of 2 limes


Blend together all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth but with a slightly uneven and consistently coarse texture. This is excellent on grilled chicken sandwiches or Mexican-style burgers and is even pretty good on fajitas!
