This recipe comes from Iguala, Guerrero where the greengage harvest is so big that the housewives invent recipes, ways to take advantage of them and preservation techniques when the season is over.
In this salsa the greengages are combined with the spicy arbol pepper to obtain a curious and original preparation. What you will have is a spicy salsa but also with certain acidity, where some sweet notes can be found. The salsa’s aroma is penetrating and its seasoning unmistakable because garlic and epazote is used in the preparation. You really have to try it.
– In the salsa an unparalleled combination is produced because the acidity of the greengage helps to decrease the chili’s hotness and the chili’s hotness also decreases the greengage’s acidity. In few words the acidic flavor of the greengage will get better and the chili’s hotness will get better; it is a win-win combination.
The greengage salsa is perfect to accompany any type of dish that has pork or chicken. Some simple grilled chicken breasts or a good roasted pork loin with this salsa, they become an exquisite dish.
