Salsa Taquera

This salsa is my favorite for a delicious simple bean and cheese burrito. However, it’s great on all tacos, hence the name.

Yields Approximately: 2 cups

- 5 tomatoes (very ripe)
- 8 Puya chillies
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 teaspoons of cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon of oregano

- On a medium hot skillet, roast tomatoes. Making sure that you are cooking the tomatoes as well as roasting. Do this by rotating them and roasting on all sides.
- Boil about 2 quarts of water and hydrate the puya chiles for about 5 minutes.
