What About a Mexican Salsa?

The recipe for this weekend, Mexican salsa made in a Molcajete, from my kitchen to yours!

The most probable thing is that you don't own a Molcajete,
but don't worry, you can use a food processor, or a blender.

From the Mercado:

6 round tomatoes

4 green tomatillos

3 serrano chiles

1 medium onion cut in fourths.

3 garlic cloves

1 bunch of fresh cilantro

salt to taste

The Secret:

The secret to this salsa is this:

Roast all the ingredients until their skin is a bit burned.

Yes, you read well, roast all the ingredients over the stove top, (and if you have a gas stove it’s even better) roast them directly on the fire! (Use tongs to turn them over)

Then put all the blackened ingredients in the molcajete or food processor. I am assuming you will use a food processor, so pulse few times being careful not to make it all liquid; we want to have some little chunks here and there.


Next time you see a molcajete, don’t hestitate, buy one!

Another salsa recipe, worth “seeing” is the one Gennine posted here.

    Thank you so much for this! We buy an amazing amount of salsa from World Market, fairly pricey and very small jars. Everytime we turn around- it’s gone! Will use this recipe, sounds so good! Never heard of a molcajete or that other what-cha-ma call it…but will pulse in the food processor! I can smell it now!! Blessings to you!

  2. Yumm! Becky, you’re the real McCoy! Now I know where to go when I need a good Mexican food recipe….My favorite food!

    Thank you for posting this delicious looking recipe.

    p.s. I keep meaning to mention how much I love your photography! You are a professional by trade, I assume?

    • I am glad you craved for it!

      No, I am not a professional photographer at all. My Beloved loves photography and has nice a camera that I “stole” :) So I guess, its the camera, not me.

      Much love, and see you “around the corner”

  3. Becky, this looks amazing and pretty easy to make.

    I have a “pilón”. It looks comparable to the molcajete. I think that will work too.

    Thank you for sharing your delicious recipes! I love them!
