I'm posting after receiving no response to a similar inquiry on the Chicago board. I saw a salsa negra recipe on, I believe, Rick Bayless's show, which featured deep-fried(until black) plain(uncoated) BROWN jalapenos(he? pointed out that this is a specific type of jalapeno ala YELLOW tomatillos and NOT a ripening stage). Googling "salsa negra," I only access tomato and black bean-based recipes. I was unsuccessful searching chowhound. Does anyone recognize the aforementioned version?
