About the Recipe
In the preparation some ingredients are fried and then everything is blended, it really isn’t complicated.
Among the ingredients we need 3 bolita peppers and unfortunately there is no chili that is similar to this one. Therefore the salsa can only be prepared with bolita pepper and it cannot be substituted.
In the recipe peanuts are also used, which have to be natural and they must not be salted.
