Salsa Attempt No. 5

6 tomatoes

8 tomatillos

1 onion

5 cloves of garlic (I was using up a bulb, so it was all those wee ones in the center)

4 Tbsp lemon juice

1 chipotle in adobo

2 jalapenos, seeded

1 Thai dragon chile

Handful of cilantro

Salt and pepper

Turn on the broiler and move the oven rack to the second to the top position. On a broiling pan, arrange the tomatoes, tomatillos, onion pieces, Thai dragon chile, and one jalapeno pepper. Place under the broiler and cook until pretty well browned or blackened, turning vegetables to cook evenly, probably 10 to 20 minutes.

Seed and de-membrane-ify the other jalapeno pepper. Put this pepper, the garlic, chipotle pepper, lemon juice, and cilantro in a food processor.

Take the vegetables out from under the broiler. Cover for about five minutes. Take the skins off of the tomatoes, tomatillos, and chile peppers. Seed the pepper as well as you can, and then put everything in the food processor. Puree until it reaches a consistency you like. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill before serving.
