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.



*Instead of 6 fresh pears, you can use 2 (15 oz.) cans of halved pears, drained. Instead of 1/4 fresh pineapple, you can use 1 (15 oz.) can pineapple slices, drained.


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.
