Hola amigos! How are you these days? I am fine, just a little busy with my family and work, that is why I haven’t been posting many recipes anymore, but today I have this delicious recipe for mince beef gorditas. Continue reading “Gorditas de Picadillo” →
Puya is a chilli similar to guajillo, but a bit more spicy. I would say that is a combination of guajillo and arbol chilli, in fact, a lot people get confused between these two, as Puya looks very similar to arbol chilli, but Puya is a bit thicker than arbol. Puya or Pulla, as some people call it, has more fruity and intense flavour than guajillo.
It goes very well with chicken, pork or beef. It is a good chilli to make salsas.
This recipe was given to me by my sister Sonia, who kindly share it with me, she told me that is a salsa from Acapulco, Guerrero, it was given to her by her sister-in-law. My sister Sonia is an excellent cook just like my other siblings. The ingredients are very simple and similar to other salsas, but you use oil to fry it. The combination of the ingredients with the oil make a more silky salsa.
Makes around 150 ml Puya salsa
Prep 10 min
Cook 15 min
Put the chillies on a hot frying pan to toast for 3 min making sure to turn them around to avoid burning them.
Then put the chillies, onion, tomatoes and garlic in a blender and blend very well, in the meantime, heat the oil, with low heat, in the same frying pan where you toasted the chillies and add the salsa you just blended. Add salt to taste and cook for 15 min.
Have it with your breakfast, tacos or any other Mexican dish!
It is Friday, Fridays for me are for relaxing and that means cooking something quick and easy, but today I fancy that plus the wow factor on it, so I decided to cook this pork stew, in my family my mum loves this dish, she says that “pork just go with tomatillo salsa”.
Anyway, let’s start with the recipe!
Prep 20 min
Cook 30 min
Prepare your salsa verde according to the recipe that is in the blog.
After you have the salsa ready, heat a casserole dish and add the oil, then add the pork shoulder chunks, add salt and cook for 10 min, add the salsa verde and cook for around 20 more min or until the meet is tender.
Server it with some roasted green pepper cubes and slices of avocado and as a side dish you can have some red rice.
