Ultimate Breakfast Salsa recipe

Breakfast salsa is my bold declaration that salsa just ain’t for tacos. The tastiest healthy sauce ever does wonders on eggs. It was a culinary epiphany I didn’t make until a trip to Mexico in my 20s and soon discovered that any request for hot sauce, even on a very gringo plate of bacon, eggs and toast, would be met with a bowl of salsa. And I have been reaching for salsa at breakfast ever since.

Up until now I have been content reaching for a jar of leftover homemade salsa for breakfast. But on this particular day I was all out and found myself forced to make a batch that morning. Lo and behold I would end up making the Ultimate Breakfast Salsa.

Tomato Arbol Salsa recipe

Tomato Arbol salsa is that red salsa sitting at the far end of the salsa bar that screams spicy. A simple blend of tomato, onion and fiery Arbol chile peppers come together to give you the red kick that is so essential to a steak taco. It seems so simple but believe me it will give your taco night a swift kick of heat.

Jalapeño Serrano salsa recipe

Jalapeño Serrano salsa found me a couple years ago when shooting the pilot for Cheap Eats. At a taqueria in Minneapolis, this creamy green salsa was served over Al Pastor tacos. It was powerfully spicy and instantly addicting; a salsa like no other I had never come across before.

Then I moved to Austin and the stuff was everywhere. Commonly referred to as Salsa Doña because it is a fixture at Austin’s Tacodeli, this green salsa is worth obsessing about. I know I have, which is why I started to make it at home. It’s fantastic on breakfast tacos, carnitas, al pastor and steak tacos.

You’re gonna want to make this salsa part of your taco night program. Trust me. This is what you will need.
