Mexican people can differentiate between the dry chilis that crack and those who don't easily. Eg: guajillo vs arbol...

This salsa is like a salsa borracha (drunk salsa) except that in México we do not usually ferment salsas but instead we use beer for that particular type of salsa, some prefer light beers but I use regular beer. And yup the custom is to add fresh chopped cilantro at the end, you can also add finely chopped onion. Some varieties include small chunks of queso fresco or small chunks of queso panela, even avocado, though I prefer to eat avocado just lightly mashed and add to it chopped cilantro, finely chopped onion and cotija cheese. PS For better flavour avoid habaneros and instead go for a combination of serranos and fresh chile de árbol, plus dried pico de pájaro and morita, it will have quite a punch. Saludos.

The editor of these videos is trying WAY too hard. This show is getting annoying real fast.

I made this as my second fermentation project and was so impressed with the results. Once I was happy with the level of funk, I used a touch of cane sugar to tone down the spice prior to refrigeration. So easy to make and the flavor is out of this world. Thanks, Brad!
