Here’s an easy, 3-step Salsa recipe from Chef Ana:
Salsa de Molcajete
Tomato and Jalapeño Salsa
(makes 2 cups)
1 clove of garlic, roasted
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch of cumin
1 pinch of black pepper corns
1 to 4 chiles serranos or jalapeños roasted and peeled
2 roma or saladet tomatoes, roasted and peeled
¼ cup of beer
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1. After roasting the garlic, chilies, onions and tomatoes in a very hot pan crush the ingredients one by one in the “molcajete,” (Mexican mortar and pestle) starting with all of the spices and the garlic.
2. Then add the rest of the ingredients one-by-one and crush. For example, add 1 chile and crush until smooth, then add the next chile and crush. Keep adding one ingredient at a time and crush until you have added all of them
3. Finally add the beer and cider.
