Here's a homemade version of the tomato salsa served at taco stands and burrito joints everywhere. Try it with all your favorite Mexican foods—it even works as enchilada sauce.
6 Reviews for Salsa Rojo
This is a salsa (sauce) and not appropriate or authentic for enchiladas. Authentic enchilada gravy uses no tomato products whatsoever. I don't care what the can reads. Make your own gravy, leave out the tomatoes.
Authentic enchilada gravy is not made with tomatoes. It is not a sauce. This recipe is fine as a salsa. Just because enchilada gravy is red it does not mean that it has tomatoes as an ingredient.
I think it would be better to not add the garlic until the onions are cooked to soft stage. The garlic can become bitter if cooked too long.
I've made this probably 20 times. I store it for a taste of the summer in the winter. love it.
