Roasted Apple Salsa

Autumn is apple harvesting season, so why not incorporate this delicious fruit into a Roasted Apple Salsa? I was originally inspired by Chef Marcela Valladolid’s Roasted Tomatillo and Apple Salsa recipe to try using apples in a salsa. Chef Marcela’s recipe is very tasty with the combination of tomatillos, Granny Apples, jalapeños, and fresh cilantro.Continue reading “Roasted Apple Salsa”

Salsa Otoño

The combination of apple cider vinegar and a hint of ground cloves puts you in a perfect autumn mood, but there’s no need to worry about a fall chill with the presence of Chiltepin Pima Bajo in Salsa Otoño. More than likely you’re probably wondering, what is a Chiltepin Pima Bajo? Well, they are aContinue reading “Salsa Otoño”

Salsa de Granada Roja

For those that aren’t familiar granada means pomegranate in Spanish. Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits to eat, mainly because I grew up with several pomegranate trees in my backyard. They are also a very healthy food source full of antioxidants. Check out more of their health benefits here. My parents just brought meContinue reading “Salsa de Granada Roja”

Salsa Sandia Aleppo

When I decided to plant watermelons in my garden for the first time this year, in the back of my mind I knew I wanted to experiment with this fruit in a salsa. Now that the watermelons have grown to full size and after a rare chile discovery at the farmers market, I have aContinue reading “Salsa Sandia Aleppo”

Hatch Corno di Toro Salsa

I came across a plethora of amazing chiles at the Roasted Chile Festival last weekend at the Rillito Park Farmers Market, but I was most excited to find Corno di Toro chiles from SouthWinds Farm out of Benson being roasted by Red’s Roasters. Red’s was also roasting some mesmerizing New Mexico Hatch Green Chiles, soContinue reading “Hatch Corno di Toro Salsa”

Thai Prickly Pear Salsa

Thai peppers are hot. Very hot. To put it in perspective, they’re on the same level of the Scoville Scale (heat measurement index) as the Sonoran region’s famous chiltepin peppers. So for this week’s Sunday Salsa I decided to integrate the Thai Peppers into a Thai Prickly Pear Salsa in hopes of taming their heat.Continue reading “Thai Prickly Pear Salsa”

Salsa Borracha

In preparation for this year’s Día de la Independencia de México (Sept. 16) I wanted to try a new salsa recipe, Salsa Borracha, from Chef Margarita Carrillo Aaronte’s book Mexico: The Cookbook. Salsa Borracha is a unique dish that has many different variations, but Chef Margarita’s recipe is composed of pasilla chiles, onion, garlic, orangeContinue reading “Salsa Borracha”

New Mexican Salsa Macha

One of my favorite memories from living in New Mexico, was going on morning runs along the Rio Grande during the fall while taking in the aroma of roasted chiles from nearby farms. It is one of the most pleasurable smells you will ever encounter, with the roasted chiles warming your heart both literally andContinue reading “New Mexican Salsa Macha”

Salsa Morada Morita

Salsa Morada Morita uses majestic looking purple bell peppers, prickly pear fruit, and red onions (hence the name morada), while also offering a fiery taste with the inclusion of chile moritas. If you have never used chile moritas before, they are jalapeño peppers that have been dehydrated. They are similar to a chipotle pepper withContinue reading “Salsa Morada Morita”

Salsa Tomatillo

Salsa Tomatillo is deliciously easy to make and compliments any type of dish, making it the perfect salsa to have with the new school year starting up this week. What makes it different from my Salsa Verde, is that this salsa is more liquid base. Rather than using roasted onions, bell peppers, and cilantro forContinue reading “Salsa Tomatillo”
