Chile de Árbol sauce or salsa taquera is a delicious dressing; just one little spoonful makes a meal much more flavorful. These chili peppers are green first and turn red as they ripen. You can eat them green and freshly cut, but it’s more common to see dehydrated peppers in stores. This variety can be compared with cayenne pepper; it’s very spicy but also very tasty.
In the taco stands and restaurants in Mexico, this sauce is very popular and goes well with tacos al pastor and carnes asadas. Here is my recipe inspired by this famous Mexican sauce.
