Crab and cheese blend together with a Mexican flair--the Crabadilla!
I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic trying to find the perfect salsa I get my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsas, this is finally it. The color and consistency tipped me off as to where I was going astray. And while I had to move away from the fresh tomatoes, it was worth it.
Salsa Roja or Red Mexican Salsa recipe for hot water bath canning. We do this every year as the garden peppers and tomatoes come to harvest.
Authentic arbol chile salsa. I like mine hot, but you can tone down the peppers if you wish.
This salsa can be made by anyone that owns a decent knife & a cutting board. You don't need to know a thing about cooking, just know how to chop. I've had just 4 people eat the entire batch, it was so good. It tastes even better the next day!

A cool, hearty salsa for your summer cookout. Makes plenty for your guests to munch on while they wait for their burgers and steaks cook.
Actually, a true salsa is pretty smooth in texture, about the consistency of a milk shake, and is often cooked. Since this has finely minced pieces throughout and is not cooked, it would really be considered what is called a pico de gallo or salsa fresca. Chop the pieces just a little bit larger and you have a ceviche! This is great as a chip dip or condiment on burgers or in tacos.
A wonderful blend of flavors and textures make this a hit anytime. Can be served as an appetizer or side, or as my son prefers, as a main dish.
This is a great, quick dish to make for parties and get togethers. This is delicious with corn chips!!
Don't worry about deep-frying these mini, meaty empanadas: just cut out circles of pie dough, fill them with this super easy filling, brush with some egg, and bake. They're not your traditional South American pastry, but close enough - and the guys coming over to watch the game sure aren't going to complain.
A quick and easy guacamole recipe.
This is my Southern California family recipe with perfectly balanced flavors, from the land of avocados.
Back in the day I had to work, it was 12-hour shifts, 7 days in a row. On Sundays when we were on daytime shifts (we worked nights, too, but not on the same week!), we'd get together and bring in a really nice dinner. This dip was always required, not just by my crew, but by the day-staffers that came in on Monday, too!
