What you’ll need:
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
2 garlic cloves
1 Thai chili, or substitute 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp cascabel chili powder or hot chili powder
1 Tbsp lime juice
5 sprigs cilantro
1/2 Tbsp salt
3 Tbsp water
How to make it:
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the sliced tomatoes and garlic clove on a lightly oiled baking sheet and roast in the oven until their aromas release, about 10 minutes.
2. Remove the roasted tomatoes and garlic from the oven and place them into a blender or food processor along with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse for 30 to 45 seconds. Scrape the sides of the blender or food processor with a rubber spatula and pulse until smooth, about another 30 seconds. Season with additional salt, if needed. Makes a small bowl.
