About the Recipe
The elaboration of this salsa is fun because a lot of easy things will be made.
This recipe can only be prepared with green and hard mangos. It is very funny but in Mexico the mangos are also used as if they were vegetables.
Use peppercorns instead of ground pepper so the huetamo has more aroma and a better flavor.
To make the huetamo any type of vegetable oil can be used.
The preparation of this salsa will take 20 minutes.
The veins of the guajillo peppers are not removed so the flavor of the chili is very present in the salsa and it contrasts with the mango.
Put on a griddle over medium heat the 10 guajillo peppers with the ones you worked and roast them for about 2 minutes, until all their sides are moderately roasted; move them regularly with some tongs.
Make sure that the chilies don’t burn because its flavor becomes bitter.
Transfer from the griddle to a blender, with the tongs, the chilies that were roasted.
