Ingredients
  • Salsa de Arbol:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chiles de arbol
  • 3 cups organic canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 small fresh tomatillo
  • Salt
  • Crema:
  • 2 cups Greek kefir yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds salted corn tortilla chips
  • 2 cups grated cotija cheese
  • 1 cup small dice white onions
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 lime wedges
Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

For the salsa: Heat the olive oil in a small pot, and then add the chiles and fry until bright orange, about 10 seconds, tossing continuously to avoid burning. Immediately remove from the oil. Transfer to a blender with the tomatoes, vinegar, 1/4 cup water, the garlic and tomatillo. Blend until smooth.

Pour the blended salsa into a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt.

For the crema: Combine the yogurt, lime juice and salt in a bowl. This may be thinned with water if necessary.

For assembly: Heat the chips in the oven for about 2 minutes, and then toss together with the hot salsa in a large stainless-steel bowl until completely covered. Cover the chips with the cotija cheese, onions and cilantro. Garnish on the side with the crema and lime wedges.
