If you are planning a fiesta for this Cinco de Mayo, don’t forget to do it right and make a fresh salsa to scoop onto your tacos. Instead of picking up a jar of salsa at the store, I was inspired by Rick Bayless, the master of Mexican cuisine, to make some authentic salsas.
First and foremost, prepackaged salsa could never be as complex as the three salsas I made: tomatillo-orange, roasted tomato, and habanero hot sauce. The first two could easily be enjoyed with chips, but the habanero was much too hot to consume by itself. To really test out these salsas, I put them on a couple pork tacos with avocado, sour cream, and lime juice.
I can only imagine how wonderful these would be with Party's slow-cooker carnitas. All three salsas were very different in flavor and turned a simple taco into something truly extraordinary. See the tasty tacos I made and the outstanding salsa recipes by reading more.
