Cinco de Mayo Mamacita’s Salsa

A blast from the Past!  

Operating Mamacita’s Fajitas and Margaritas for some 17 years, we made some great memories — here’s one of them!  

1 lb yellow onions, chopped chunky

3/4 C vegetable oil
5 serrano peppers – sliced thin

4 C water

3 T cumin

1 bunch cilantro, chopped 

1 T sugar

1 T crushed red pepper

2 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes

Sauté onions in oil until soft in a large pot.  Add tomatoes and water.  Chop serranos.  Add serranos and spices to tomato mixture.  Bring to boil, boil 5 minutes.  Add cilantro, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.   Serve warm with chips or flour tortillas (or mix with ranch dressing for an awesome salad dressing!). Can be frozen and served again by the way!      

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
