Ingredients
  • 4 dried arbol chiles, stemmed
  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

Directions

Toast the chiles in a dry skillet or saucepan over medium-low heat, shaking the pan, about 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 cup boiling water on top, cover and let soak 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Grill the tomatoes, turning, until charred. Transfer to a food processor. Add the chiles and their soaking water, onion, garlic, oregano, lime juice, sugar and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt; pulse until chunky. Set aside, about 1 hour. Garnish with cilantro.
