I am looking for authentic salsa recipes for a salsa party. All kinds. Also a good recipe for mexican rice and beans. Thanks!

    They are quite a few in the Rick Bayles cookbook, Mexican Kitchen

      From a Mexican friend - no recipe - more of a method and not far off from what Rick Bayless does.

      Roast about 15 tomatillos for 10 min at 300 degrees.
      Stem 2-10 Jalapenos, depending on desired heat level (go for 10!).
      Rough chop about 1/2 cup white onion.
      3 cloves garlic
      1-2 limes juiced
      Sometimes I use cilantro as well, but my buddy doesn't care for it.

      Toss it all in a food processor and give it a whirl. The cool thing about this method is you can add as much of each ingredient as you like, or switch it up and use serranos or any other chile.

        Best tomatoes you can find
        medium onion
        FRESH cilantro
        Jalapeno pepper or serrano 1 or 2 or 3 depends on your taste
        salt to taste
        1 lime
        dash olive oil

        Peel the tomatoes, & core & chop
        chop the onion
        chop the pepper
        chop the cilantro
        Combine in bowl & stir, add dash of fresh lime juice & dash olive oil..Stir together and voila..Mmmm good..plain & simple..doesn't keep that long but tastes great!!! It will keep a day or two though.....No garlic in salsa in Mexico that I've ever tasted!!!

          I like this recipe because it is so simple. 3 roma tomatoes, 1/2 small onion, 1 clove of garlic, 1 small jalapeno, and a cheese grater with the small holes.

          Grate it up into a bowl, add about 1/2 tsp of salt, and juice of 1/2 a lime. Add minced cilantro if you like .
