Salsa de Chile de Arbol
(Very Hot!)


•  20 dried arbol chilies
•  2 cloves garlic, peeled
•  water
•  2 tbsp. oil
•  salt


Heat your oven to 350°. Place chilies on a baking sheet. Toast the chilies in the oven for 1-2 minutes. Be vigilant, as the chilies will burn quickly. Cool chilies.

Remove stems from chilies. Place chilies in the container of a blender with the cloves of garlic. Add in just enough water to facilitate blending. Puree well.

In a small skillet, heat oil. Add in chili puree, and sauté until most of the water has evaporated out of the sauce. Salt to taste.

Makes about ½ cup
