By "molcajete style" salsa I mean that chunky, fresh, hot-off-the-stove flavor. It's the kind of salsa that's perfect for tacos or grilled meats.
The ingredients are very basic:
- 4 tomatoes
- 1 to 2 green chiles (I used 3, but wouldn't recommend it. The salsa was so spicy I couldn't see straight.)
- 1/2 a white onion or a 1 very small onion, finely chopped
- 1 to 2 cloves of garlic, depending on your taste, finely chopped
- salt to taste
STEP 1. Place tomatoes and chiles on a comal or small flying pan on medium to medium-high heat. Turn them over frequently to char the sides.
(The idea isn't to completely burn them -- we're leaving the skin on for flavor.)
Have a taste and season with more salt if needed.
