Happy Birthday Sergio!
Today is his 56th birthday, and he is celebrating about 55 years of eating chilis, as salsa is one of the most common foods in a Mexican household. Kids start eating salsa before they can even chew tortillas! It's a super important source of Vitamin C for the people here.

We are taking advantage of the kitchen here in this fabulous AirBnB and taping some cooking demos. This video is Sergio making salsa. We also have a video over on Instagram of him dancing salsa, which is one of our highest viewed posts so far. : D
Did you know that chili peppers are indigenous to Mexico? They are extremely high in vitamin C- a half cup of them provides over 100% of the RDA.
One delicious seasonal twist is to add mango to your salsa. Mango is indigenous to Africa and India, and was introduced to Mexico by the Spanish.
One of the true joys in life is eating a ripe mango in Mexico straight from the tree. That right there should be on your bucket list and is reason to spend late summer / early fall in Mexico.
It is an amazing fruit that provides a natural sweetness that pairs well with fish or chicken. This salsa is not my favorite for breakfast salsa but that is just personal preference. I do not like sweet things on eggs. Yuk.
If you like spicy heat, try this recipe with habanero pepper. Just be careful - turn on the fan and open windows when you roast the peppers, and use gloves to cut them up. Sergio never uses gloves, but he has got a lifetime of hot chili conditioning.
We've taped a few more videos and will be posting those in the next 2 weeks after we move to our new place, a tiny apartment with great big internet connection that will make it much easier to upload videos.
