Mexican Salsa

A great salsa for chips, tacos, eggs, etc.

Instructions

  1. 1Place whole tomatoes, whole peppers, whole garlic clove, and bacon and oil/lard in a partially covered skillet at medium/high heat. Remove garlic clove when soft and bacon when done.
  2. 2Once the tomatoes and peppers are slightly browned/blackened in places remove them from the skillet and place them along with the garlic, bacon, salt, and a tablespoon of the cooking liquid in the skillet in a blender or molcajete. Blend until slightly chunky (add garlic, peppers, salt, liquid, and bacon first, then the tomatoes).
  3. 3Pour the salsa into a small bowl and add the chopped cilantro and mix by hand. Enjoy!
