Spicy taqueria-style serrano pepper salsa!! Perfect for tacos, burritos, wraps & sandwiches, chips & dip, rice bowls, and more! This is quick and easy to make and keeps well in the fridge. In fact, it will taste even better after overnight in the fridge. 🙂
This simple and quick traditional taqueria-style salsa is soooo good and super spicy. I used serrano peppers and cherry tomatoes from my garden, but you can find both at your local farmer’s market or grocery store.
Serrano peppers are very hot, so if you want this a bit less spicy use some red jalapeño or another more mild pepper. So a dab of this on your dish will enhance the flavor without overpowering it, a little goes a long way!
- 1/3 cup serrano peppers
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 lemon, juiced
- In a pan on medium heat, roast the peppers, tomatoes, & garlic for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend until combined. Leave some texture and don't blend until completely smooth.
- Store in a jar in the fridge, it tastes even better the next day. Enjoy!
