(Los Angeles Times)

In a mortar or small bowl, mash the garlic in the salt until dissolved to a paste. Place in a serving bowl. Add the onion, tomatoes, chiles (salsa should be hot, but adjust amount of chiles to level of heat desired) and stir to blend well.


Stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Let stand at room temperature about 2 hours for flavors to blend. Serve at room temperature as an accompaniment to cocido.
