On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Puya Chile Salsa


The Puya chile is similar to the Guajillo, but smaller and hotter. It is often used more for its fruity flavor, rather than its flesh, which means it is great pureed, mashed or diced, and then made into a sauce. It may be soaked in water to pull out the flavor, and then the water can be used in your dish. The Puya may be used as a pizza topping, or with meat dishes, such as pork, veal, fish and chicken.
Puya Chile Salsa recipe:
5 dried Puya chiles
3 cups diced tomatoes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice
Salt to Taste  Directions
Place chiles in boiling water; blanch 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Drain; cool slightly. Discard stems and seeds.
Process all ingredients in food processor or blender until coarsely chopped. This Salsa is great for tacos.
