Not everyone is aware that good Southwestern Salsa, like New Mexico chile sauce, is available in two colors: Red (salsa roja) and green (salsa verde). Where the red salsa highlights the tomato, green salsa is all about it's relative, the tomatillo.

Here at the ranch, we normally have both red and green in the 'fridge, just as we do the chile sauces. It's not that one is better than the other, it is more that they both add freshness and wonderful spice to just about everything!l
