This Spicy Salsa is a showstopper! Bring the Tortilla Chips! Just as good as any salsa you will find in your favorite Mexican restaurant.
One of the many great things about living in Southern California is great authentic Mexican food. I probably eat more Mexican than any other type of food. And what is Mexican food without a good Spicy Salsa?
I’ve made many different kinds of salsas and Pico de Gallo’s (the chunky version of salsa) over the years, but this salsa is one of my favorites. Very similar to my Chunky Chili Style Salsa, but not as chunky.
In my opinion, the Salsa served in a Mexican restaurant will pretty much dictate what the rest of their menu will taste like. If you can’t master Salsa, then how the heck will you master delicious Mexican dishes? Think about it and get back to me.
Going out to restaurants can get expensive at times so when you and your family crave Mexican food, just make sure you try this authentic Salsa recipe and you won’t be disappointed.
Do you ever wonder where Salsa comes from? I mean we all probably figure it’s from Mexico but…? I found this article that explains it all.
Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
