This is a great recipe from our good friends Jeremy and Shelly, a salsa with a secret ingredient of Chili Pequin. It is so delicious, quick and perfect for any gathering (or a weekend at the beach)!
8-10 (or more if you like it hot!) dried Chili Pequin (sometimes called Chili Pepin; these come in cello pack of a handful. They are small like peas.)
One bunch green onions, chopped
One bunch cilantro
1 T. minced garlic
2 cans stewed tomatoes
Salt/pepper to taste
Place chilis in the blender, and whir them up so there aren’t any big chunks. You may have to give it a shake to get them up into the blades.
Add all the items, starting with green of the green onions, cilantro, minced garlic, then both cans of stewed tomatoes. Blend for about 10 seconds, and it will look like a delicious salsa margarita.
Taste, and add salt as needed, re-blending until it is all blended and tastes just right.
