2 Sensational Salsas: Red & Green

Salsas are required at outdoor summer gatherings, in our humble opinion. Here are two A+ salsa recipes that are easy and delicioso, from one of our favorite Chicago-based Mexican cooks Vivi Abeja. She was inspired by her Abuelita to always stock two kinds in her fridge: ”A spicy salsa and a not-as-spicy salsa,” Vivi says. These two fit the bill: A red salsa made with chile de arbol and a green salsa made with serrano and jalapeño chiles, plus two kinds of tomatillo. See how she makes both salsas, step by step.
