Chile de Arbol Salsa Recipe

Chile de Arbol Salsa


24 chiles de arbol
1 garlic clove
1/4 c white onion, diced
3/4 c water
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt


Sweat the onions, garlic clove (whole, no skin), and chiles in oil over medium heat. Be careful not to burn the chiles. When the chiles are pliable and slightly browned and the onions and garlic are softened, transfer them to a blender. Add 1/4 cup of water and puree. When it stops making progress, add another 1/4 cup of water and continue to puree. When it appears to be fully blended, add the final 1/4 cup of water and the salt and puree, stopping to scrape down the sides until the salsa is as smooth as possible. Makes about 3/4 cup.
