“I have a friend from Guatamala who introduced me to this wonderful salsa. The toasted chilie gives it wonderful rich undertones, and the fresh onions and cilantro adds a fresh cool aftertaste. My family can't get enough of this salsa. My husband eats it right out of the bowl with chips. A great way to kick up plain poultry, fish or beef dishes. Also great to make spanish rice. Do not touch your eyes while handling chilie de arbol, as it is very spicy.”
