Ya tengo listos cuatro tomates.
Son bongos y timbales.
La cebolla es una maraca.
Los ajos son trompetas
y el cilantro un director de orquesta
con su pelo verde todo despeinado.

Para que la música sea alegre,
no hay que olvidar los chiles.
A mi familia le encanta los picante.

A nuestra salsa
siempre le ponemos chiles.
Ummm, qué rico picante y sabor burbujeante.
Comer chile es como estar bailando
entre arcoíris y estrellas.

I am ready with four tomatoes.
They are bongos and kettledrums.
The onion is a maraca.
Cloves of garlic are trumpets,
and the cilantro is the orchestra conductor
with his shaggy, green hair.

For the music to be really spicy,
it’s important to use chilies.
My family loves hot peppers.

We always put hot peppers in our salsa.
Ummm, the hotness is so delicious.
The bubbly taste of chilies
makes me feel like I’m dancing among
rainbows and stars.

In this new cooking poem, Jorge Argueta brings us a fun and easy recipe for a yummy salsa. A young boy and his sister gather the ingredients and grind them up in a molcajete, just like their ancestors used to do, singing and dancing all the while. The children imagine that their ingredients are different parts of an orchestra -- the tomatoes are bongos and kettledrums, the onion, a maraca, the cloves of garlic, trumpets and the cilantro, the conductor. They chop and then grind these ingredients in the molcajete, along with red chili peppers for the "hotness" that is so delicious, finally adding a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of salt. When they are finished, their mother warms tortillas and their father lays out plates, as the whole family, including the cat and dog, dance salsa in mouth-watering anticipation. Winner of the International Latino Book Award for Guacamole, Jorge Argueta has once again written a recipe-poem that families will delight in. Each book in the cooking poem series features a talented illustrator from the Latino world. In Salsa the text is complemented by the rich, earthy illustrations of multiple award-winning illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh. His interest in honoring the art of the past in contemporary contexts is evident in these wonderful illustrations, which evoke the pre-Columbian Mixtec codex.
