Curtido: Salsa’s Best Friend

Tacos/ Mexican
April 26, 2021
Salsa’s Best Friend (and taco’s too) Curtido is a taco condiment staple, especially in the Yucatan where it is featured on Cochinita Pibil, Mexico’s answer to low and slow pulled pork. I like it on many tacos, especially the meaty ones likes Carnitas or Campechano(steak and chorizo). And making it could not be more simple.

Braised Pork Chile Verde recipe

Tacos/ Mexican
September 13, 2020
Pork Chile Verde It’s a hearty, comforting Mexican icon. Superb in tacos, burritos, over rice or even just in a damn bowl, Pork Chile Verde is a staple on both sides of the border. Thanks to one of Food & Wine’s Best of the Best cookbooks from years back, I stumbled upon a Rick Bayless version where chunks of pork shoulder are braised slowly in an oven along with tomatillos, cilantro and pickled jalapeños. Despite countless versions of Pork Chile ...

Breakfast Salsa recipe

May 21, 2020
Ultimate Breakfast Salsa recipe Breakfast salsa is my bold declaration that salsa just ain’t for tacos. The tastiest healthy sauce ever does wonders on eggs. It was a culinary epiphany I didn’t make until a trip to Mexico in my 20s and soon discovered that any request for hot sauce, even on a very gringo plate of bacon, eggs and toast, would be met with a bowl of salsa. And I have been reaching for salsa at breakfast ever since. ...

Tomato Arbol Salsa recipe Tomato Arbol salsa is that red salsa sitting at the far end of the salsa bar that screams spicy. A simple blend of tomato, onion and fiery Arbol chile peppers come together to give you the red kick that is so essential to a steak taco. It seems so simple but believe me it will give your taco night a swift kick of heat.

Jalapeño Serrano salsa recipe Jalapeño Serrano salsa found me a couple years ago when shooting the pilot for Cheap Eats. At a taqueria in Minneapolis, this creamy green salsa was served over Al Pastor tacos. It was powerfully spicy and instantly addicting; a salsa like no other I had never come across before. Then I moved to Austin and the stuff was everywhere. Commonly referred to as Salsa Doña because it is a fixture at Austin’s Tacodeli, this green salsa ...
