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.

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 ...

Austin isn’t exactly a two horse town when it comes to food. Sure, there are plenty of farm to table special occasion meals, some ridiculously good burgers, and some of the best soup dumplings I have ever had but if you came here and just stuck to barbecue and tacos, you would cover a lot of delicious ground. So imagine then what happens if tacos and barbecue get into a tussle? When the dust settles, what emerges is a hand ...

Now Austin has a rep for “keeping it weird” and some of the more noteworthy do just that. Torchy’s Tacos rethinks comfort food in a tortilla, East Side King brings you Asian street food in a tortilla and Taco Deli slings it farm to ...
