Ninfa's red sauce

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 \N Tomatoes
1 teaspoon Salt
2 \N Arbol chilies; fried in oil
2 \N Serrano chilies
1 tablespoon Chopped cilantro
½ teaspoon Chopped garlic

1. Boil tomatoes until tender in a small amount of water. Remove from heat and place in blender.

2. Add salt, chilies, cilantro and garlic and blend to the desired consistency. This should be a thick, delicious sauce. Arbol chilies are long (about 2-½ in.), brilliant red chilies with smooth, shiny skin, and have a real bite. Serranos are small (about 1-½ in.) tapered green chilies usually only available canned. Although tiny, they too have a bite.

They are available at Mexican markets and sometimes at the Farmers Co-op Market. If not available, substitute any small very hot chile for the arbol and jalapenos for the serranos. NINFA'S
