There is nothing better than a really good, spicy salsa that you can dump on your tacos, burritos, chips… or if you are my kids, then on your eggs in the morning.
While I can’t seem to most past the most mild salsa, my kids can somehow drink the hottest of all the salsas – and they start at the very youngest of ages. A tiny bit on the finger is all it took when they were just over a year old, for them all to go hotter, and hotter as the years went on.
I was leery of giving my kids hot salsa at that age but apparently that’s how my husband started out … me, not so much. Sometimes I feel like I definitely have my hot sensors in the right place until I stuff my mouth full of Hatch Chile Chicken and then realize I’m not as tough as I think (before running to the fridge to drown my sorrows in a half gallon of milk…)
Being out of salsa now is almost as bad as running out of milk – especially when your kids dump it on everything.
This toasted chile de arbol salsa is incredibly easy to make and SUPER spicy – it requires only two ingredients plus a pinch of salt, and can be made in less than 5 minutes.
Perfect for those of you who hate being in the kitchen!
I think the hardest part might just be washing the blender… but hey, if you have kids, then give them the opportunity to lend a hand in the kitchen. It’s great experience for them and a wonderful way to bond with them – they wash, you dry! ;)
