Minor info on lighting setup in this thread

Those Scoville Units tell you hot these babies are!

Of course we'll need to see how our favorite hot sauces measure up.

We'll forget that "Red Chili" is also a climbing shoe.


Then we'll start with our first recipe:

SALSA DE CHILE ROJO (Red Chili Sauce)
(courtesy cooks.com)

4 dried ancho or pasilla chilies, or 3 tbsp. chili powder, or 1 tsp. crushed red pepper
4 med. tomatoes (1 1/2 lbs.) or 1 (15 oz.) can tomato puree
1 med. onion, cut up
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. cooking oil

Cut chilies open. Discard stems and seeds. Cut chilies into small pieces with scissors or a knife. Place in bowl; cover with boiling water. Let stand 45 to 60 minutes. Drain.

To peel tomatoes, dip them in boiling water for 30 seconds; plunge into cold water. Slip skins off. Quarter tomatoes. Place in blender container; cover and blend until nearly smooth. Measure 2 cups of the blended tomatoes; return to blender container (or place canned tomato puree in blender container). Add the drained chilies or chili powder or crushed red pepper. Add onion, garlic, salt and sugar; cover and blend until smooth.

In 1 1/2 quart saucepan combine tomato mixture and cooking oil. Cook and stir over medium heat about 10 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Makes 2 cups.

Dinner is at JP's: cocktails at 3:38 PM, dinner served prompty after the third margarita. Sauna will be lit, as well as the cook.
