Peach and Tequila

This recipe is a very original and versatile option that serves us as salsa but it can also be used to marinate meats while they are raw and when they are cooked they will have a fantastic seasoning.

– If the salsa is going to be used to marinate, we recommend leaving the meat marinating for about 8 hours so it impregnates of all the flavors and aromas of the salsa.

Without a doubt the tequila is the most recognized Mexican drink worldwide. And possibly you did not imagine that it could be used in the preparation of some dishes. In this preparation is combined with very different flavors such as the peaches and the arbol pepper, that give an amazing aromatic complexity. The flavor may seem too contrasty but it is exceptional.

In fact the salsa is strong because the tequila’s flavor is very predominant, it has certain sweetness from the peach and a sparkle of hotness. Definitely a salsa that cannot be missed.
