You won’t be able to stop eating this Salsa de Arbol!

August 27, 2017

It’s that delicious! Spicy, sweet and balanced in flavor that draws you more and more in to its savory, nuanced goodness each dip you take.

On a recent trip to Mexico, the restaurant we frequented had an amazing Salsa that I put on everything. I couldn’t stop eating it! I reached out to the kitchen staff and they graciously shared their delicious recipe with me. I have converted the recipe from metric to US and increased the ratio of tomato to balance the heat with the sweet.

Salsa de Arbol


1/2 cup Chile de Arbol (Dry Serrano Red Chili) 

2/3 cup Onion chopped

2 cups Tomato chopped

2 tbsp Garlic chopped

2 tbsp Sesame Oil

2 tsp Cilantro

2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Pepper


1. Add sesame oil to pan preheated to medium-high. Cook chile de árbol, onion, tomato and garlic until onion, tomatoes and chiles have softened. 

2. Pour hot ingredients into a bowl and purée. Let cool.

3. Once cold, blend all ingredients with cilantro, salt and pepper.
