Chipotle Salsa With Lime Chips

I’m pretty sure as humankind we have agreed that everyone likes chips and salsa. Right?!? Well, I am elevating your typical jarred salsa with bagged chips by making it all from scratch. When you roast the fresh vegetables in your oven, blend the ingredients together, and freshly fry the chips, it’s a whole different story! Adding in the chipotles in adobo give the salsa a nice spice and a hint of smokiness!
