“This is a traditional Mexican sauce that works great over meats, fish, beans, rice, tacos, and quesadillas. Roasting the ingredients might seem like a bother, but it doesn't take more than 15 minutes and it's worth every single second.”

Directions

  1. Cover a large griddle or skillet with aluminum foil and heat on the stove over medium-high heat. Roast the garlic, serrano peppers, onion, and tomatoes on the hot griddle, turning frequently, until lightly blackened, but not burned, about 5 minutes for the garlic, 10 minutes for the peppers and onions, and 15 minutes for the tomatoes. Set the vegetables aside to cool.
  2. Blend the garlic, peppers, onion, tomatoes, and salt in a blender or food processor until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Whoa that's some heat! It was hard to add salt to taste because it was spicy. I made this for my husband; I'm the wuss! I had to alter the serving size in half because it makes enough. I think it needed lime and a bit more garlic.

This is a bit like salsa to me. My family loved it - we are making it for the third time today! Definitely it is worth the time spent roasting the veggies as Tequila Pro says. I didn't use the aluminum foil (that didn't work for me), I just used my large cast iron skillet to roast the veggies on my gas stove. One thing that I wasn't sure about at first was whether to cut the veggies first -- the recipe doesn't say to do it -- I didn't and it worked perfectly. Yum, yum!
