Ms Buena Vida on The Food Beat “Smoky Guajillo Salsa”

Salsa with no tomato? Damn good salsa with no tomato! Watch Me Buena Vida make her famous smoky guajillo salsa from start to finish on The Food Beat.






Leila’s Smoky Guajillo Salsa


Adapted from Bon Appetit’s Smoky Two Chili Salsa



  • 4-6 large dried guajillo chilies seeded and torn
  • 1 cup super hot water
  • 1/2 white onion (quartered)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 T adobo sauce from a small can of chipotles (adjust heat by adding more or less)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 T agave nectar
  • 1 T olive oil salt to taste



In a small bowl soak the chilies in water for an hour or more. On a medium-high stove, in a small pan, dry roast the onion to slightly char, add the garlic toward the end because it will char faster. Remember to turn them to roast evenly.


When the onion and garlic are tender and falling apart, transfer the chillies, chili liquid, onion, garlic and the remaining ingredients to your food processor and puree until completely blended.


Store in the fridge for up to a week. Makes about 2 cups.



Thank you Ms. Buena Vida.









The Onion Apologizes To Ms. Quvenzhané Wallis…….Sorta…..

85th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Arrivals





The Onion apology:









Dear Readers,


On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.


No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.


The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.


In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible.


Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.



Steve Hannah






Read the Tweet above, then read the apology once again.


If your 9 year old daughter, sister, niece, aunt, best friend, grandchild or godchild were called a cunt, would Mr. Hannah’s apology be enough for you?


Oscar is now a gutter snipe because this satirical publication has allowed one of it’s employees, using The Onion label, to slander and degrade a 9 year old child, who just happens to be a 9 yeah old Black child.


I wonder what Dakota Fanning‘s “people” would say if this had been directed toward her?


Finally I am curious about something else too….I am curious about this: Why are Ms. Sandra Fluke, and other feminist crusaders, silent when Ms. Quvenzhané Wallis , age 9, is called the “C” word that rhymes with PUNT, in tweets by The Onion?


Remember when not so long ago, Rush Limbaugh called Ms. Fluke a slut, and all of America stood up in defense of Ms. Fluke. YET I hear no protest. no public outcry from the caucasian women’s movement. Can it be that a 9 year old Black American female is less of a human being than a female caucasian college student?
