This salsa pairs the rich complexity of roasted tomatoes and tomatillos with peppery árbol chilies. Serve with any dish in need of spice.
- 1 pound plum tomatoes (Roma), cored
- 1/2 pound tomatillos, husked
- 1/2 cup dried arbol chili peppers, seeded
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, stemmed
- 1/2 small yellow onion, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons salt
Preheat a broiler. Place the tomatoes and tomatillos in a shallow baking pan. Broil, turning occasionally, until charred on all sides, 10-12 minutes.
In a small, dry frying pan over medium heat, toast the chilies, turning once, until the skins begin to blister, 3-5 minutes. Transfer the chilies to a saucepan and add the tomatoes, cilantro, onion, garlic, water and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the chilies are soft, 10-12 minutes.
Let cool, then transfer to a blender. Puree until smooth, then strain through a sieve placed over a bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature. To store, cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
