Authentic Specialty Salsa

“IF YOU DARE” AUTHENTIC SPECIALTY SALSA

I remember always watching and helping my grandma make tortillas, refried beans, guacamole, rice, enchiladas and many other Mexican dishes. One of her specialties though, was salsa. It was the best! She used a mocajete, which is a 3-legged lava bowl with a tear-shaped lava stone that fit in your hand and was used for crushing peppers and tomatoes. We’d have fresh salsa with every meal.

What make’s my salsa unique are the 6 different types of peppers and the preparation of them.  The flavor wakes up your taste buds.  Once you start eating this salsa you can’t stop.
