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 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!
