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

Pinch of sugar

Kosher salt

Fresh cilantro, for garnish

  1. 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.
