The Secret to These Steak Tacos Lies in a Deceptively Simple Salsa

A steak taco topped with salsa de chile de arbol

By Miguel Guerrero

This salsa is deceptively simple: just three ingredients that, when ground together in a Molcajete, create something much more complex than the sum of their parts. The recipe, a riff on one from La Cocina de Leslie, is a go-to salsa my own family has memorized and makes for every carne asada and easy dinner. It doesn't need much more than a perfectly charred piece of steak and a corn tortilla fresh off the comal. Sometimes less is more.
