Salsa - Mexican Red Salsas
Red Salsas from Mexico (Salsas Rojas de Tomate)
One misconception is that Red Salsas are extremely hot just because they contain chile. It’s farther from the truth. Contrary to popular belief, salsas are delicious and spicy enough to give your food a delicious zesty kick. Red Salsas come in a full range of ingredients and flavors within a variety of red salsa recipes. Mexican Red Salsas are prepared by combining cooked tomatoes; where they get their red color, onion, garlic, chili peppers and fresh cilantro! A well prepared salsa will enhance all those dishes, seafood, and meats that otherwise would be dull and bland.
Originally Mexican red salsas where made using the molcajete (mortar and pestle) to gain a very distinctive flavor only the molcajete can give; due to the constant uses, the volcanic rock with which is made of, absorbs the flavors of every salsa made, providing the salsa with a delicious flavor and seasoning that is hard to duplicate, every time. Salsas began with the Aztecs, Incas and Mayans, who would combine chiles, tomatoes and other spices to create what the Spaniards in the conquest later called “Salsa.” The combination of ground squash seeds and chili peppers was a condiment poured over lobster, fish, turkey and venison which was consumed by the Aztec lords. Salsa has been a staple in the Mexican gastronomy, being the salsa the most important part of a meal, the key ingredient that gives food its flavor. Real Mexican salsa began with the Spanish conquest of Mexico, when they created the spicy concoction made with the combination of chili peppers, and tomatoes known today as salsa, used atop many dishes, and that you can find in any restaurant in Mexico accompanied with tortilla chips as an appetizer while you wait for your meal.
