Pumpkin Salsa




About: Celebrate Fall with a savory salsa featuring chunks of pumpkin in a warm blend of chipotle and fresh tomatoes. This unique seasonal condiment is ideal for both holiday entertaining and cooking. Depending on the brand, I suggest adding cinnamon and maple syrup to enhance the autumn flavors. For extra warmth, heat salsa in the microwave just before serving.
