READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by katie in the UP

This simple dish, from El Bordo de las Lanzas, looks like a salsa but is usually eaten as a side dish with grilled or roasted meats.

5 bright stars for Katie! This is a great recipe. Instead of bell peppers and a serrano chili I used a poblano pepper (better known as GW's peppers) and added a couple tablespoons of cilantro. Served with Mysteryshopper's Empanadas and it was perfect! Thanks for sharing.
