The puya pepper is similar to the guajillo pepper, the difference is that it is smaller and spicier than the guajillo. This type of chili grows in the states of Michoacan and Jalisco, in fact this salsa is from Michoacan and is very funny because the housewives of Michoacan use interchangeably the puya pepper and the guajillo pepper in their recipes.
And here we have a curious case because this salsa is born from the combination of the puya pepper with the guajillo pepper and to give freshness tomato and tomatillo is also used in the preparation. The outcome is a rustic and spicy salsa that has a lot of flavor.
The puya pepper salsa can be used as table salsa, this means that it simply has to be put on the table and your diners will manage to combine it with different foods. If you want to give them a suggestion... this salsa gives a very good flavor to dishes that have beef or pork.
