Fried Green Salsa

Don’t believe that this is not the typical Mexican green salsa... in essence this is the green salsa that we all know but the preparation technique is a little different because the salsa is fried to obtain a slightly different result to the one of the regular green salsa.

Although the ingredients that are used are the same, what happens to the salsa when it is fried is that the oil wraps it in softness and it gives an exceptional flavor. This is the salsa that has to be used when you don’t want that the flavor of your dishes to be overshadow by the use of a salsa.

– Don’t forget that this salsa is a beauty because it serves for almost everything. It can be used to put to appetizers, tacos, burritos, eggs, tortilla chips, quesadillas, etc.

About the Recipe

  • The preparation of this salsa is quite simple, perfect for beginners.
