Chowhound Features: "One Salsa, Two Salsas: Red Salsa & Green Salsa"
I love salsas. It’s fair to say that, for Mexicans, the salsa is the soul of a dish. No matter how lavish or simple, extravagant or humble, a meal without salsa is simply not a meal in any Mexican household. And while Mexican cooks like my mother are thankful for their blenders, food processors and immersion blenders, they will still tell you that there is nothing—absolutely nothing—like a salsa de molcajete (mortar and pestle sauce). It’s just magical.
