Chile de Arbol Salsa

Jump to recipe

If you haven’t had a “Chile de Arbol Salsa” or tried Chile de Arbol you’re missing out big time! Chile de Arbol is one of Mexico’s iconic chilies, It is a very hot pepper, it is like a first cousin to Cayenne Pepper. It is smoky and nutty, I just love it!

For this salsa I love using tomatillos because they are tart and bright with a citrus flavor, they balance the salsa so well.

The beautiful and delicious tortilla chips you are looking at are from @sabormexicano Foods. These are Chipotle and Blue Corn Tortilla Chips. All ingredients for the chips and products for Sabor Mexicano restaurants are homegrown at Jorge Saldana’s (owner) farm in Sonoma County. All carefully cultivated without GMOs, pesticides or harmful chemicals.

These chips were the perfect complement for my Chile de Arbol Salsa. Totally addicting and 100% delicious.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
