salsa de chile de árbol

5 ripe plum tomatoes
7 dried árbol chiles, stemmed
2 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled

Broil the tomatoes for about 8 minutes, then turn and broil another 8. They will be soft, blistered, and blackened in spots. Transfer to blender along with any juices. Heat a small skillet over medium high heat, then toast the chiles, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the chiles and the garlic to the blender and purée. Season to taste with salt.

makes about 1 1/4 cups


Ummm, sounds good. Might go well with my Paella. Check New Recipes
