Rajas con jitomate (chile strips with tomatoes)

Yield: 48 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 Chiles poblanos; roasted and peeled
6 tablespoons Peanut oil
1½ medium Onions; thinly sliced
1 teaspoon Salt
2 pounds Tomatoes; peel, seed, chop

Remove the seeds and veins from the chiles and cut them into strips about 1½ inhes long and ½ inch wide. If the chiles seem too picante, soak them in salted water for about 30 minutes.

Heat the oil and fry the onions gently, without browning them, until they are soft.

Add the chile strips, tomatoes and salt to the onions in the pan. Cook uncovered, over a fairly high flame until the vegetables are well seasoned and the liquid has evaporated--about 10 minutes.

This is excellent served like a thick sauce over Torta de Elote. It also makes a very good accompaniment to plain broiled meat, fish, or chicken.
