Baja Fresh Salsa Recipe?
Does anyone have the recipe for Baja Fresh's Salsa Baja - the really dark, almost black salsa recipe? The closest store is 4 hours from my house and I'm jonesing for their salsa....please. help. a. woman. who. needs. a. Mexican. food. fix.!
hi guys- just want to point out the "recipelink" recipe is something an individual concocted for her own personal use.
there's a more plausible recipe at topsecretrecipes.com. if you don't want to pay for his version (creating copycat recipes is how he makes his living), martha stewart has a recipe with the same techniques, but different proportions of the same ingredients.
imho, snarking on a restaurant because of someone's GUESS about what's in their recipes is unreasonable.
I have no clue what the recipe entails. The post tweaked my interest, so I did a quick search. I didn't even really look at it after it listed charred tomatoes. I figured it was just another standard roasted tomato salsa. Sounds like the chicken broth is used to kinda reconstitue everything to a more liquidy state. The olive oil strikes me as a little more odd than the broth - and also the lack of cumin and fresh ground black pepper. But, whatever. Probably worth a try if you wnat the baja fresh style stuff.
What a bizarre recipe!
That's WAY too much liquid - I say don't include the chicken broth.
Olive oil in fresh salsa - what the... Leave it out!
I haven't been to BF in a while, but the dark green sauce could use roasted tomatillos instead of tomatos. Roasted poblanos are probably used in addition to jalapenos. By all means DO roast the garlic!
