This is my mother's recipe. These brownies have the right balance of sweet and spicy. Gloves will be needed for preparing this.

  2. Blend in blender with a small amount of the soaking water to create a paste-like consistency.

I love this recipe! I found it a few years ago on another website and absolutely LOVE it! Be warned, though. Simmering the chiles will make your whole house smell like their spicy aroma! It's fabulous if you're a chilehead, but it could be surprising to someone not used to it.
