Chile de Árbol and Tomatillo Sauce


This deceptively simple salsa is quite delicious—and picante! You can lower the heat a bit by removing some or all of the chile seeds. I pour this sauce over fried eggs, dusted with dry cheese and chopped cilantro.

  • 9 Chiles de Árbol, stems removed and wiped clean
  • 1 1/2 cups tomatillos, husked and boiled for about 5 minutes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  1. Toast the chiles briefly on a dry skillet or comal. And the chiles and all other ingredients to a blender jar and blend until somewhat smooth.
  2. Options: Try toasting the whole garlic cloves on the dry skillet along with the chiles for a roasted garlic flavor.
