    Smoked Chile del Arbol Salsa


    30-40 chile del Arbol pods, stems removed

    1 lb. sliced Roma tomatoes

    3-4 garlic cloves, peeled

    1 sliced onion

    Smoked sea salt

    Fresh ground pepper

    ½ cup chopped Cilantro

     I smoked the chiles, tomatoes, garlic and onions in my Weber 22.5 in. grill, using the AMZN cold smoker. I lit up two rows of mesquite, more rows is too much smoke in a   22.5 in grill for my liking. Just for fun, I coated some Oaxaca and Manchego cheese with some spices I use in my chorizo, such as garlic, smoked Spanish paprika and mild Chimayo. But, that’s another thread/recipe.


    After the smoke, I toasted the chiles in a dry skillet at medium heat, until they started to smoke.


    I then removed them from the skillet to cool. I chopped the onions and garlic, and I put them in the skillet, along with a little olive oil, letting them cook until translucent.


    I then put everything in a food processor along with the Cilantro, adding about ¼ cup of water at a time, as I pulsed it to the consistency I like. Lastly I added a little smoked sea salt and fresh ground black pepper



    This is a very tasty/hot salsa. You might want to consider using 20-25 chile pods as a start.



    It’s all good my friend.
