Recipe By Mike Johnston, Savory Spice founder

This salsa is perfect for summer but can also be enjoyed in the middle of winter if you use canned pears and pineapple instead of fresh.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with chips or as a topping for fish, pork or chicken.

Preheat broiler. Place pears and pineapple on a baking sheet lined with foil. Broil for 4 to 5 min. per side then set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine bell peppers, lime juice and La Plata. Mince chipotle chiles from adobo sauce and add both chiles and sauce to bowl. (For more heat, use a 1/2 can of chipotle in adobo; to ease up a bit, use 1/4 can.) Add remaining ingredients and stir lightly. Coarsely dice roasted pears and pineapple and gently fold into salsa. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
