Aldaco's Salsa de Mesa

RG

Ingredients

  • 6 large red tomatoes
  • 6 large jalapeno peppers, stemmed
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 10 chiles de arbol, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, lower stems removed
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Roast tomatoes on a comal or cast iron fry pan until skins are dark and tomatoes are soft.
  2. Repeat with the jalapenos and onion. Roast the chiles de arbol over medium heat, turning them as necessary, and taking care not to burn them. (Be careful as they will smoke and make you cough!)
  3. Place all roasted ingredients in a blender or food processor; add the fresh garlic and cilantro. Pulse briefly or use chopping mode until the mixture has a thick consistency. Do not allow the salsa to liquefy. Add salt to taste.

Yield: about 6 cups

Recipe can be halved.
