Salsa Madre

Salsa Madre - This versatile little mother is at home with Chicken as it is Beef, Pork, and Fish. You want to use it while it is fresh, but we've kept some in the fridge for 2 weeks and the flavor really held up. Like any good sauce it is a simple mixture of ingredients you undoubtedly have laying around.
