I know it’s only Tuesday but that means Monday is behind us and it’s ok to be planning for the coming weekend. The weather is warming up here in gloomy Minnesota which makes me think salsa and margaritas. This salsa recipe was shared with me by a Mexican friend of mine, he cooked it, I watched. He’s the breeder I bought my dog Mango, a beautiful, hairless xoloitzcuintle from in Baja California back in 2006. He and I remained friends ever since. He loves to cook and he and his gorgeous family came to visit when I lived in Canada. This was one of the recipes he showed me how to make. The original recipe has developed a little over the years but the basics are still the same.
Of course if one is going to eat salsa one must have a margarita to accompany it. I think of all cocktails a well-made margarita is probably top of the list. I’ve tried variations of margaritas over the years but this one is by far my fave. I’ve also tried it with more expensive booze but trust me, this version using triple sec I found to be a winner.
