Chimichurri

This time I prepared this wonderful little lamb chops and I made a chimichurri sauce that goes perfectly with grill stake. Chimichurri is a green sauce that comes from Argentina. Originally it is prepared with parsley, but I used cilantro instead. It is delicious and it is the easiest sauce to prepare, basically you just throw all the ingredients in the blender and ready!!

Just throw all the ingredients in the blender (or if you have a food processor much better), and done!

Mango Salsa

 

Love mangos, and as a good mexican, love salsa too. So this Mango salsa combines the two in a perfect way, sweet, salty, spicy. As I walk into the grocery store and I see the pile of mangos calling me, I think how many things I can prepare with them. This time I decided to go with the salsa. I topped my shrimp tacos with it and I also top my fish with it the next da. Let me tell you, the next day was even better as all the flavors blended longer. The very little that wast left, I pour it over my simple salad, and was delicious too.

Molcajete Salsa

This is a Molcajete. It is a utensil thatĀ the indians created to grind vegetables to prepare all different kind of salsas. It is made out of volcanic rock. It is like a bowl with three legs and a separate oval stone.

Today I made salsa, have I mentioned that we all Mexicans love to pour salsa over everything? Well yes, we do. Tabasco can’t beat a real homemade salsa. And even better, a blander can’t beat a molcajete, it gives the salsa such a nice different texture. That is why I still use it.

This is a really spicy (hot) salsa, but we love spiciness too! You may adapt the ingredients to your convenience.
