By the name of this salsa we can sense that it is a “brave" salsa, which means, very spicy. Its origin is from the state of Chihuahua and it has some similarity with another famous northern salsa, the Tarahumara wild salsa.
In the preparation 2 variety of dried chilies are combined: the cascabel and the pequin – which are very spicy. Besides several aromatic herbs are used to perfume the preparation but the best part is that vinegar is used to give an exact acidic point and to reduce its hotness.
The salsa’s texture is a bit rough because it doesn’t have neither tomatoes nor tomatillos. Since it is a spicy and potent salsa, it can be used in dishes that have beef like: grilled steak, arrachera, tacos al carbon, etc.
