Mexican cuisine is renowned for its colourful and high-contrast dishes, which are served with fresh ingredients in a huge variety of flat breads. In addition to the traditional guacamole, salsa – the Mexican name for sauce – plays a crucial role. Whether served traditionally with tomatoes or with black beans as in this recipe, almost every Mexican meal includes a salsa. Fresh jalapeños, garlic and onions provide the traditional spicy heat; avocado and beans serve as their mild and creamy counterparts. Arriba Mexican food!
