    Classic recipe

    Salsa Criolla

    Salsa criolla is a general term for an onion-based South American salsa. We blend De-Stemmed Aji Amarillo Chiles, cilantro and lime juice for the flavor and heat. Salting and rinsing the onions before adding the other ingredients reduces the strength of the onion.
