This duo of salsas are perfect for just about any meal imaginable. The first salsa, cascabel chile salsa, is made of peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and salt for a simple and versatile sauce. The second, salsa borracha, is made with sauteed chiles and onions, beer, tomato, and salt for a bold flavor. Both of these recipes are super simple to make and it will be great to have on hand to accent everything from breakfast tacos to enchilladas.

Simple salsa with great flavor. What more could you ask for? I omitted the beer and used an apple cider vinegar instead. It’s perfect.
