Kayla is a self-taught home cook and baker. Growing up with her grandparents, she would spend hours in front of the TV watching the Food Network. She and her grandmother would mold play-dough into different fruits and vegetables while watching cooking shows and have contests to see who made the most realistic dish. Eventually, Kayla moved on from play-dough and began to work with real food. On her blog, enrootkitchen.com
, you’ll find recipes made from scratch for the home cook and baker ranging from all skill levels! She also showcases these dishes on her Instagram: @enrootkitchen

CAST IRON SKILLET
- Add the olive oil to a cast iron skillet. While the skillet heats up, prep the other ingredients.
- Remove the tops from the pasilla chiles. Then, slice down the middle and remove the seeds. Set the pasilla chiles to the side for now.
- Quarter the tomatoes and onion. Then, remove the tops from the jalapeños and slice in half. Peel the skin off of the garlic and set these ingredients to the side.
- Slice an orange and juice it. Set the orange juice to the side as well.
- The skillet should be hot now! Add the pasilla chiles to the skillet and toast for about 1 minute per side. Once toasted, remove from the skillet and place in a blender.
- Next, add the tomatoes, onions, garlic, and jalapeños to the skillet and cook until they're nicely charred. Remove from the skillet and add to the blender along with the pasilla chiles.
- Pour the dark Mexican lager into the blender, followed by the orange juice. Add the salt here, too!
- Blend until the mixture thickens (about 3 minutes or so).
- Serve immediately with chips and the cilantro/cheese or return the sauce back to the skillet to warm it up a bit more! Enjoy!

Looking for a slightly more acidic flavor? Add juice from 1 lime once the salsa borracha is blended!
This salsa borracha is amazing on tacos, too!
Possibly smokier than chipotles, pasillas have a rich taste with earthy notes. They have a slight raisin-like aroma, are complexly layered in their flavor, and are mild in heat.
Himalayan salt has a strong, salty flavor and a slight mineral aroma. This version is fine grain and ready to use in cooking or as a table salt replacement.
