Ninfa's Red Sauce

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 5 Tomatoes
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 Arbol chilies; fried in oil
  • 2 Serrano chilies
  • 1 tb Chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 ts Chopped garlic


1. Boil tomatoes until tender in a small amount of water. Remove from heat
and place in blender.

2. Add salt, chilies, cilantro and garlic and blend to the desired
consistency. This should be a thick, delicious sauce. Arbol chilies are
long (about 2-1/2 in.), brilliant red chilies with smooth, shiny skin, and
have a real bite. Serranos are small (about 1-1/2 in.) tapered green
chilies usually only available canned. Although tiny, they too have a bite.
They are available at Mexican markets and sometimes at the Farmers Co-op
Market. If not available, substitute any small very hot chile for the arbol
and jalapenos for the serranos.
