Salsa Attempt No. 3

6 Roma tomatoes

10 tomatillos

4 cloves garlic

1 serrano pepper

3 jalapeno peppers

1 chipotle pepper in adobo

1 onion, in eighths

Juice of 1/2 lime

Small handful of cilantro

Pinch cumin

Salt and pepper, to taste

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, one jalapeno pepper, and one serrano pepper. Place under the broiler and cook until pretty well browned or blackened, turning vegetables to cook evenly, probably 10 to 20 minutes.

Seed the other two jalapeno peppers. De-membrane-ify one of them. Put the jalapenos, garlic, chipotle pepper, lime juice, cumin, 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 peppers. Seed the peppers 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.
