Recipe By : Too Hot Tamales Show #THSP01

Lightly toast chiles in a dry saute pan over moderate heat until soft and
aromatic. Soak in warm water to cover 10 minutes. Puree chiles and water in
blender until smooth. In a large skillet over medium heat, toast corn until
lightly golden about 5 minutes. Cool completely and coarsely grind in a
food processor until it resembles cracked wheat. Place in a bowl and cover
with water and soak 10 minutes, then drain completely. Bring chicken broth
to a boil and add ground toasted corn and seasoned chicken legs. Return to
a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30
minutes. Add chile puree, herbe sante and tomatoes and continue simmering
20 additional minutes or until chicken is cooked through, remembering to
stir occasionally to keep corn from sticking. Serve chicken legs in shallow
soup plates with tomato pieces, and plenty of sauce. Serve with a salad and
bread for mopping up the sauce.
