A recipe in my blog? I don't see why not.. Cooking is, for me, a creative outlet. I cook to celebrate and to share, cooking makes me feel closer to my family and
my culture. I thought I could share some of these recipes now and then and I hope you enjoy them.
And to all of us who will celebrate Mexico's independence tonight.. ¡Viva México!
Homemade salsa roja
You will need:
4 plum tomatoes cored.
1/8 of a white onion
3 Serrano chilies, stems removed (you can use 1 jalapeño
instead and you can change the amounts depending on how mild
or spicy you want your salsa)
1 teaspoon of salt
few cilantro leaves
I don't put garlic on this salsa, but if you like the flavor you can add 1/2 clove
and roast it along with the other ingredients.
On a comal or a skillet, roast the tomatoes, onion and chilies until blackened
on all sides.
If you want to make it the traditional way, place all the roasted ingredients
in a molcajete, add the fresh cilantro leaves and grind with the pestle
until smooth. You can use a blender or a food processor instead.
Season with salt.
