We have developed a taste for salsa. Actually we have been spoiled by Maricela's homemade salsas. A standard by which we now judge all. When we asked her for a recipe - one we particularly like, she said just make it with love. Well, we needed a few guidelines. Here is what she gave us.
Chile mi casa
De Arbol style
Hot oil chile - Use a large handful of Chile de Arbol chiles, break apart and roast seeds and skin in saute pan until seeds turn brown in color, add corn oil - 1 1/2 cups, and crank up the heat to very hot, fry in the oil until chiles turn dark brown - 3 to 5 minutes. This is where your eyes, start burning. Remove from heat and let cool. Put everything in a blender, add salt to taste...and this is where you add the love. Blend till just course on chop cycle about 2 minutes, be sure seeds remain whole - this is important.
