Recipe For Chile California Puree
10 to 12 chile California peppers, stemmed and seeded
4 cloves of garlic
½ tablespoon cumin
½ tablespoon oregano
Combine the dried chiles and garlic in a pot, fill with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes, stirring now and then. Drain the peppers and garlic, transfer to the blender, add the cumin, oregano, 2 teaspoons salt and about a ¾ cup of water. Blend on high until smooth, about 30 seconds. You can use the puree as-is, or you can strain it through a wire mesh strainer for a smoother finish.
This puree can be used for all kinds of dishes, great for making enchilada sauce!
