We can't forget about the side dishes on the best day to eat Mexican food. And what better way to eat those delicious loaded nachos (from Day 2 of our Cinco de Mayo countdown list) then to couple it with this equally tasty and spicy fire-roasted salsa!

Whether having it on the side or topping it on tortillas, chips, tacos, burritos, enchiladas or even seasoned rice, this versatile recipe will come in handy when looking for last second touches to the perfect Cinco de Mayo meal. 

You simply can't go wrong with this one!

  • Crushed red pepper, o̶p̶t̶i̶o̶n̶a̶l̶ (*ahem* DEFINITELY Fuegorita time!!!)



  1. Add garlic to the food processor until minced
