I discovered this recipe while living in San Diego. It is very simple to make and creates an extremely flavorful sauce. Aside from burritos, it goes good in ground beef, eggs and anything else that needs a Mexican kick.
- 2 cloves garlic
- ½ onion
- 2 jalapenos
- cilantro to taste
- 1 lime
- 28 ounce can tomatoes juice drained and saved for another use
In a blender add lime juice and peeled garlic cloves. Chop stems from peppers and add whole peppers to blender. Slice onion in large slices and add to blender. Toss in cilantro with stems and process on high until ground up. Add tomatoes and blend again until incorporated. Keeps in refrigerator for about a month. Use 1-2 tbsp for each burrito either inside or on top or both. My wife skips on the onion most of the time when she’s making it and I tend to use the zest from the lime for extra zip.
