Expert Tips

Increase the quantities proportionally to serve more guests.

This Christmas I'm going to try and get a little more personal with my gift giving to family and friends. I usually give away practical gifts: My mom gets some nice walking shoes or clothes, my viejo gets underwear and socks (he loves this); and my son gets books, toys and clothes. Well my friends, this year I came up with a gift that comes from my heart and also says a lot about who I am. I’ve decided to make a homemade Christmas gift: Jarred spicy chile de árbol salsa. It says "I Love You" in a way that I believe is the best way to say it: through food! It's really easy, too! First I went out and bought a bunch of mason jars at my local thrift shop. Then, I went to my local market and bought all the ingredients for my chile de árbol salsa that I usually make and multiplied the amounts by 8! I went home, made the salsa with love and care, jarred it all up and put a pretty bright bow on top of it! Check out the easy recipe for my salsa here. I suggest you also prepare it for your family, they’ll love it!

This is a really flavorful sauce, so I always recommend it to serve it with tacos! Let us know how it goes, and enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 In a large saucepan over medium heat, add in water to a halfway mark. Add in 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil. Add in chile de árbol and boil for 30 minutes. Once it’s boiling, pour out 3 cups of water from this batch of boiled chili peppers and reserve. Set aside.
  • 2 In a different saucepan over a medium flame, add water to a halfway mark and bring to a boil. Add in tomatoes and boil for 35 minutes or until tomatoes crack and are fork tender. Drain. Set aside.
  • 3 In a small frying pan over a medium flame, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil and fry the onion halves with the garlic cloves until browned.
  • 4 In a blender, add all the chiles (after you drained them and removed the stems), tomatoes, onion, garlic, and 3 cups of reserved water used to boil the chili peppers. Blend until smooth.
  • 5 Season with salt to your liking.
