what you'll need to start

Large bowl, blender, serving bowl


  1. Start by rehydrating, destemming, and seeding all your chiles. (Here are the directions for rehydrating chiles if you need them!)
  2. Add your prepped chiles to a blender and roughly chop your tomatoes, onions, and garlic cloves. They will be blended so the chopping does not need to be precise.  
  3. Add in your chopped veggies, lime juice, grapeseed oil, and a teaspoon of sea salt to start.  
  4. Blend the mixture on high until the sauce is thick but smooth. Taste for salt and add if needed. 
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy!
