Salsas

Aztec Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
A very mild salsa that everyone enjoys. I have a friend who hates every single ingredient in here except the corn, but he still loves the salsa. The longer it sits, the more the flavors come out.

Spicy Watermelon Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 2
This is a spicy-sweet salsa that starts off cool and ends in heat. It's hot, but very refreshing. I keep the seeds in the peppers for maximum heat. This was a prize-winning recipe at our neighbor's classic Cinco de Mayo party.

Drunken Peachanero Salsa

Rating: 4 stars 7
This nice and fruity salsa has a kick. A slightly-underipe peach gives it a bit of crunch. Serve with corn chips or spoon onto hamburgers. Try vodka in place of the tequila for a different flavor.

Avocado Mango Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 256
Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!

Black Bean Avocado Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 186
This has to be my favorite summer salsa. It's colorful and fresh tasting. It makes a bunch, so invite some friends over. I like to take the lime after it's been juiced and rub down the bowl I will be serving the salsa in. I also rub the lime on the plastic wrap this will help keep the avocados from turning brown. Don't forget the tortilla chips!

Romesco Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
A wonderful versatile Latin sauce originating in Spain with amazing flavors. It can be served with grilled chicken, fish and seafood, as a sauce for pasta, or alone as a dip. Once you try this, you will be hooked! Try using hazelnuts instead of the almonds. Can be stored in the refrigerator for 1 week. Tastes are enhanced if allowed to sit for a few hours.

Spinach Basil Pesto

Rating: 5 stars 568
A tasty blend of spinach, basil, lemon, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan.

Chef John's Nectarine Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 32
This nectarine salsa combines sweetness with heat. I've always loved the marvelous contrast between a hot, smoky piece of meat and a cold, fruity salsa, and this version featuring nectarines does not disappoint. A basket of crispy tortilla chips is the only thing that pairs better with this fresh fruit salsa. Keep it in mind if you have a few peaches to use this summer.

Baja Sauce for Fish or Shrimp Tacos

Rating: 4.5 stars 42
Creamy, spicy Baja-style taco sauce with sour cream, mayo, and cilantro.

Quick Enchilada Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 92
This recipe is ready to use in about 10 minutes and so much better then the canned sauce in the Mexican foods aisle at your local grocery store. This is a quick, easy version if you don't have the patience or time to completely make from scratch. Hope you enjoy!

Old Fashioned Brown Gravy

Rating: 4 stars 103
Make homemade gravy with pan drippings from turkey, beef, pork, or chicken.
