For a dense blend, try this picante sauce:
4 Roma tomatoes,
peeled and chopped
Puree tomatoes, onion, and jalapenos in a blender. Heat oil in saucepan. Add pureed mixture, tomato juice, oregano, and salt. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove and let stand for at least one hour. Serve or refrigerate.
The above are called salsas rojas (red sauces). For green sauce (salsa verde) use tomatillas as a base.
To prepare tomatillos: remove husks and place in enough cold water to cover in saucepan. Bring to a boil, drain and let cool.
To prepare California chiles: place on foil in oven under broiler and roast. Turn to blacken all sides. Remove and place in paper bag for about 10-15 minutes. Peel away skins and remove stems.
Place all ingredients in blends and puree.
Return to saucepan
and simmer for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
You can create many variations from these basic recipes. Try your own blends and see what happens!
