Salsas are great low carb seasonings and also replace the need for salt.
SALT? - the secret ingredient of many Mexican cooks? It does pep up the pico de gallo, and the meat, and the eggs, and ....
Anyway, R. and I made a great tasting salsa today, he ran the molcajete while I roasted the stuff, and the women sat around cooing over the baby. We used the salsa with chopped grilled pork tacos.
1 large jalapeno (we left the seeds in)
Ground them in the molcajete with:
2 large garlic toes
Threw in some fresh chopped onion
Plenty of cilantro sprigs were on the side, along with avacado, radishes, and lettuce (all stuff we could find).
We drank plenty of agua de sandia - for which it is not hard to find takers. The nicest part was that, because the meal was simple enough, we all were as worry free as a bunch of Mexican men sitting around on Sunday waiting to be fed.
