  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • small handful of cilantro
  • 1 small onion

* Taste test as you go along.  If you think it needs a little more of something, add it!  :) 

  1. Roast the chilies for a few minutes in a frying pan.
  2. Chop the tomatoes and onions up into smaller pieces.
  3. Add the chilies, tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, salt, cumin, and cilantro to a blender or food processor.  Mix it up!
  4. Add onion and lime juice and mix it up a bit more.
  5. Serve.

  1. How 'hot' is this?
    My husband likes spicy and I do not! :)

  2. I thought it was a bit hot, but not too bad. Ben didn't think it was hot. If you want it less spicy, add fewer chilies, and it should be just fine! :)
