Easy, fast and it works in a pinch-still better than the jar stuff.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you can only find dried ancho chilies remove stems and cut into 1 inch pieces, cover with boiling water and let stand for 30 min.
  2. Drain the chilies and put into a blender with 1/2 of the tomatoes and juice.
  3. Process until semi smooth.
  4. Add this and all remaining ingredients into a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes.

We really liked this! I used the dried ancho chilis, and removed the seeds before rehydrating them. I also put the entire can of tomatoes in the blender. I got a nice, chunky salsa. Thanks! We'll be using this again.
