Dried chile Anchos
Hot water
Recipe By: Annie Somerville in "Fields of Greens" Preheat the oven to
350 F. Roast the chiles on an ungreased baking sheet until they puff
up and smell toasty, about 5 minutes. Pull the chiles apart at the
stem end and remove the stem (and the seeds, if you so desire). Place
the chiles in a small bowl and cover with hot water, allowing them to
soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Place the chiles in a blender or food
processor; add a small amount of the soaking liquid and process to a
smooth puree, adding more liquid if needed. The puree will keep in the
refrigerator for as long as several weeks. Serving Ideas : Add to
sauces for heat and a dark, almost musty flavor. Ancho chiles are
dried poblanos, available in Mexican speciality stores. CHILE-HEADS
