these little peppers have lots of flavor with a medium heat. cheap and quick way of making a salsa that is restaurant quality....that will appeal to most everyone ! you can find these dried peppers in the ethnic section of your market...usually hanging in a clear bag. all walmarts carry them.!
- 5 arbol chiles
- 1 small onion
- 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups of chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- add the chiles and onion to a food processor and chop finely.
- add to your other ingredients.blend and chill for at least an hour.
- this is a great dip with chips -- and an excellent addition to foil packs of fish or chicken cooked in the oven or grill !
I had to make a small substitution on this one. I couldn't get my hands on arbol chiles. The local market had anchos, though, which I love, so I used those. It was still amazing! I love that this salsa has plenty of cilantro, and plenty of citrus, which are some of my favorite flavors in a salsa. I also love that it uses canned tomatoes. So much easier than peeling and dicing fresh ones, and the flavor certainly doesn't suffer for it. The absolute best salsa I've made. For PAC Fall 2008.
