If your homemade burrito is blah, kick up the flavor with the Chipotle Tomato Salsa recipe. While many people happily order their favorite bowl or burrito from the popular quick service restaurant, the recent recipe reveal is making everyone excited. Maybe you could make some extra salsa to enjoy just because.
While chips and salsa are a snack essential, not all salsa recipes are the same. Some people prefer chunky and other people prefer a more blended salsa option. That discussion is only the start of the salsa preferences. Add in spice levels, onions and the always controversial cilantro, salsa can become food throwdown.
As more people prefer fresh food, bringing favorite restaurant recipes into the home kitchen is important. It isn’t that customers aren’t going to their favorite restaurant, they just want to recreate those favorite flavors at home. Even with the convenience of food delivery, sometimes you just need more salsa.
Recently, Chipotle took to TikTok and revealed its Tomato Salsa recipe. If you aren’t big into watching videos, here is the recipe written out.
Chipotle Tomato Salsa Recipe

Yes, the recipe is just that simple. Truthfully, there is something to be said about the type of tomatoes used, the ratio of ingredients and the exact measurements. But, sometimes a salsa recipe is a little more about the look and feel of a dish versus the exact recreation.
If you are thinking about making this Chipotle Tomato Salsa recipe at home, here are a few hints. Make sure to have all your chops the same size. Anyone who has watched Worst Cooks on Food Network knows that knife cuts matter.
Second, pick some good tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes or even heirloom tomatoes will make a difference in this recipe. Since it is so simple, the best ingredients are important.
Lastly, taste as you go. Start with a little salt, lemon and lime juice. You can always add more but you cannot take it back.
Whether you drown your burrito in the Chipotle Tomato Salsa, serve it with a bowl of chips or find a creative way of serving it, it might become a staple in your weekly menu.
