1) Soaked about 20 dried red chile de arbol peppers in 2 T. oil & 2 T.
jalapeno pepper juice** (the canned kind - I use the San Marcos brand)
for about 1 hour. I broke off the stems but left the chilis whole. Every
now & then, I would stir to just keep coating them.
2) Lifted the chilis out of the juice & threw them in my blender.
3) Coarsely chopped up two large gloves of elephant garlic
4) Poured about 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar into the blender
5) Hit "on" & let it grind until the chilis were chopped up.
6) Took out the middle of the cap and while the blender was running,
poured the leftover oil/jalapeno juice into the mixture. Then poured
just straight oil in. I didn't measure, but I was aiming for equal parts
of oil & vinegar.....so probably about 1/2 cup.
7) Kept pulsing until all the chilis were chopped.
It was the same color as the La Choza/La Candelas sauce so I was really
excited as I poured it out into my bowl. At the first taste....I
couldn't believe it. There was that delicious taste in my own kitchen.
Final note: I really like, I mean REALLY like, hot peppers. So.....you
may want to decrease the amount of peppers you throw in. Also, I could
taste the garlic alot. If you aren't particularly fond of either of
these flavors, you can experiment & add amounts to your own liking. But
the basic recipe is there. Now - go & enjoy!

It is on the archway as you enter the seating area...if you ask the waiters what is in it...they tell you mango, cream, and chiles.
Where is it in relation to the painted aphorism that translates to something along the lines of "even those who hold the frying pan by the handle will get into heaven"? In that, "mango" means "handle".
If the waiters tell you the salsa has mangos or dairy in it, they're either mistaken or misleading you for some reason.
