Chef Notes With the popularity of Mexican cuisine continuing to rise, this authentic salsa is a great option for a unique salsa that is on-trend. Salsa Macha is very different than other Mexican salsas. It is created from dried peppers cooked in oil with fresh garlic and gets a wonderful crunch and nutty flavor from California almonds.
