TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped green or sweet red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 3 cups chopped seeded tomatoes
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle hot pepper sauce
