My friend Ari shared this recipe with me - her aunt made it for her in Mexico. Enjoy!

Serves: 1 cup
Ingredients
  • 3 tomatoes (my tomatoes were a little smaller than normal, so I used about 9 tomatoes)
  • 3 chiles serranos
  • salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them cut-side down in a pan. (I used a non-stick pan and would recommend that.)
  2. Cut off the stems of the serrano chiles and place them whole in the pan with the tomatoes (no cutting or seeding necessary!).
  3. Cook the tomatoes and chiles over high heat to burn them. Ari said about 3-4 minutes per side, but I think it took mine more like 5-10 minutes per side. You will see little brown and black spots on the tomatoes and chiles when they are ready to come off the heat. You cut the tomatoes in half and put them on a pan with the chiles (chiles are complete with seeds). The tomato skins will also start to peel off.
  4. Remove from heat, put everything in the pan in a blender and blend well. Season with salt to taste, probably about ¼ - ½ teaspoon.
  5. As Ari said, "Habemus salsa!"
