Chile Pequin Homestyle Salsa

Teena Mathis


If you live in South Texas Chile Pequin bushes grow wild. I have oh half a dozen bushes in my yard. We love anything hot and there are more variations of this hot sauce than I can name. My friend Maria gave me this one.
She makes it in a mocajete and serves it on the table fresh daily.
