You may know the tacos by name at El Come, Revolver, and Tacos Mariachi. But do you have a clue about their salsas and the chiles that add that perfect kick to al pastor or carne asada? The right salsa brings out the best flavors in meat or fish and complements cilantro and diced onion. In many cases, it’s as essential to the taco as the tortilla that holds it all together. These Dallas spots share their most popular salsas and the ingredients that have given them cult status in the eyes of taco lovers. Bring on the spice.
