Here's a cool recipe I came accross from the inquisitive minds at Curious Cuisiniere. At first glance it might seem like and odd combination, but the spicy, peppery flavors in our Collier Falls Petite Sirah are a great compliment to this simple salsa recipe. And the smoky flavor from the chipotle peppers are a nice counterbalance to the smooth, vanilla finish of our wine. Enjoy!
1 lb tomatoes
Half of one medium red onion
4 chipotles in adobo sauce (4 chipotles is about half of a 7.5 oz can)
2 Tbsp Collier Falls Petite Sirah
1 Tbsp adobo (from the canned chipotles)
Handful of chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Dice the tomatoes and place them in a colander to drain for 5 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.
Dice the onion and 4 chipotles and place them in a medium bowl. Add wine, adobo, and drained tomatoes. Add salt, pepper and cilantro and mix well.
Taste for spice and add more chipotles, salt and pepper if desired. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and a big glass of Collier Falls!
