This is my attempt to reproduce a heavenly salsa that was served by the Casa de Valdez (RIP), an outstanding New Mexican restaurant that was in Rancho de Taos, NM for many years. I have discovered that the location is now called Tequila’s. I don’t know whether anything is still the same.
Like other restaurants, they would not share their secret ingredient to the salsa.
There is lots of garlic and lime in this salsa. It should not be particularly hot or sweet.
