¡Esta Rojo!

Rick Bayless is a big fat liar.

Or maybe we just aren't simpático.

At the end of his Brava Steak recipe, Bayless suggests topping the steaks with Lazy Salsa.

It was a wrap-up-the-summer Sunday evening cookout.  Lazy I was definitely after.

Only this was the most labor intensive salsa I've ever made.

Lazy would be asking The Husband to open a jar.  Roasting peppers, grilling onions and tomatoes, pulsing in a food processor (which I had to wash) is far from lazy.

Pants on fire, Rick.

Of course had he named the salsa "Use Up All of Your Day Salsa," I never would have tried it.

Know what?  I would have missed out big time.  Lazy Salsa is the best salsa I've had--it even rivals the salsa at my favorite Mexican restaurant.

Go ahead, Rick.  Lie to me some more.

By the way, the steaks were also excellent in case you were wondering.  The garlic-jalapeno-lime marinade provided lots of flavor.  The steaks could be eaten as is.  But I just loved them topped with the warm salsa.  The salsa is a winner with chips too.

Both the steak and salsa recipes can be found online.  Click below.  You'll be glad you did.

Lazy Salsa (Salsa Huevona)

Kim @ Stirring the Pot made these steaks for Grill Week at I Heart Cooking Clubs and topped them with  Chipotle Steak Sauce.
