About this recipe

In Mexican cuisine, salsa borracha (drunken salsa) is very popular and there are many ways to make it. Some people make it with Tequila or Mezcal, some with pure tomato, and others with a mixture of tomatillo and tomato.

This drunken salsa recipe goes with tomatillos, which combine perfectly with beer because they are slightly acidic and a little sweet.

About tomatillos

Tomatillos are small, round, green fruits that are widely used in Mexican cuisine.

Cooking the tomatillos for the salsa borracha softens their texture and enhances their flavor, resulting in a balanced, super-rich salsa.

To choose the best tomatillos, look for those with soft skin and that are firm to the touch. The peel must be intact and of good size.

Check that they are not bitten by insects and that they have a fresh aroma. Before using them, peel them and wash them under cold running water.
