Salsa Tatemada (Burnt Salsa)

Salsa Tatemada (Burnt Salsa)

This salsa is burnt but not burn. The flavor of the salsa is amazing you don’t need to eat super spicy food to enjoy Mexican food, this is one of the big examples on how with just few ingredients you can create something for many dishes, you can make chilaquiles, chicharron con salsa etc. You can go either spicy with the serrano or just mild with the jalapeño. Personally I recommend the serrano chile it brings just a little kick but not burn in your mouth. Give this salsa a try you won’t be disappointed.

Ingredients

  • 3 each roma tomatoes

  • 1 large onion cut into chunks

  • half bunch cilantro

  • 1 lb green tomatillos

  • 1 serrano chili seeded (jalapeño chile can be substituted)
