1/4 of an onion

salt to taste

  1. I made this salsa tonight and my family loved it with the rolled chicken tacos! It was an instant hit! I'm hooked on your channel right now! I can't get enough of your recipes and style of cooking. It's really really good food. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. I saw you make the flour tortillas, and those looked like the most delicious tortillas ever. Food Network does not have the corner on good cooking at all by a long stretch.

  2. She only used a little of the water to make the salsa…You can bet a lot of the flavor from the vegetables and chilies was left in the water that never got used.  I dunno, this recipe kinda goes against some basic principles of cooking. I would  boil my vegetables and chilies in the exact amount of water I needed to make the salsa, no more, no less.

  3. Greetings from Vienna! I made this the other night using dried chiles my sister brought me from the states as a present. It was incredible! A new favorite in our household. Thanks!
