Salsa Attempt No. 1

6 smallish tomatoes

10 tomatillos

2 serrano pepper

2 Tbsp garlic

1 onion, in eighths

1 chipotle pepper in adobo

Juice of 1 lime

About a handful of cilantro


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, and one serrano pepper. Place under the broiler and cook until pretty well browned or blackened, turning vegetables to cook evenly, probably 20 to 30 minutes.

Seed and de-membrane-ify the other serrano pepper. Put this pepper, the garlic, chipotle pepper, lime 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 the other serrano pepper. Seed the pepper as well as you can, and then put everything in the food processor. Puree until it reaches a consistency you like. Salt to taste. Chill before serving.
