Chipotle Onion Relish

Chipotle Onion Relish

Have you ever tried Harry and David's Pepper & Onion Relish?  It is soooo good!  So good, and so far away.  The closest Harry & David's store near me is 45 minutes.  Too far away for me to drive just for a snack.

What's not too far away? A local farm's fruit and vegetable stand + my kitchen.  I picked up some fresh roma tomatoes from the farm and headed home to whip up my own version of this yummy relish!  I know what you might be thinking... RELISH?  I'm not talking sissy sweet relish for hot dogs here, I'm talking smokey, spicy, salsa-like greatness!

After browsing the web for relish and chutney recipes, I finally decided that I had a good idea as to how to create my own.  Amazingly, I even remembered to use actual measurements as I experimented.  Here's what you'll need:

Chipotle Onion Relish
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 small red onions
4 cloves garlic
2 T water
3 large roma tomatoes
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
1/4 C red wine vinegar
1 T honey
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1/2 t smoked paprika

Serve at room temperature on top of whipped cream cheese and crackers.

If you decide to try out my recipe, please let me know of any changes you made!  This was my first time creating a recipe of this sort.  My mom thinks it would be better if I chopped the onion, but I kind of like how the slices of onion help to identify the ingredients!

Happy Sunday Funday!!
