This is another amazing salsa of the Mexican recipe book, that seems to have a salsa available for almost any occasion and for each dish.
By the name of the salsa it can be sensed that there is going to be a lot of mixture and this is because of the ingredients that the Spaniards brought to America are used like the garlic, the onion, the oil, etc. And also Mexican ingredients are used like the pequin pepper and the bell pepper.
The surprise ingredient of the mestiza salsa is the avocado that gives softness and certain consistency to it. When you finish preparing it you will have an exquisite and spicy salsa, that can almost be used in any dish that has beef, chicken or fish – it could also be used in appetizers.
About the Recipe
To make the salsa you will work a little but everything is easy to make.
In the salsa bell peppers are used and we recommend using them red because those are the ones that better color and better flavor give to the salsa.
This salsa is moderately spicy because 6 pequin peppers are used however if you want it lightly spicy, just use 3.
Only 10 minutes are needed to make the salsa.
This recipe yields 2 cups.
6 dried Pequin Peppers (.4 oz)
2 Avocados (17.6 oz)
2 Bell Peppers (10.5 oz)
1/4 of an Onion (1.2 oz)
1 Garlic clove (.1 oz)
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
1/2 tablespoon of Salt
1 Frying Pan
1 Chopping Board
Remove the seeds and the veins of 2 bell peppers.
The seeds of the bell peppers are removed so the salsa has better texture.
Cut into strips the 2 bell peppers with the ones you worked, then reserve.
Finely chop 1/4 of an onion and 1 garlic clove; then reserve.
