    Just made your Salsa Tapatia, Fabulous!!! Couldn’t find chilis de arbol, substituted serrano, that was the only change I made. Love, love, love this salsa, delicious!! Trying salsa callejera next, can’t wait.

    Thanks you so much

      Boil the dried chiles together with the tomatoes and tomatillos to rehydrate them Tim. Enjoy 🙂
