Ancho Chile Salsa Recipe
4 medium ancho chiles, wiped clean, stemmed, and seeded
2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
4 tbsp fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
4 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 tbsp olive oil (optional)
Toast the chiles directly over a medium gas flame or in a cast-iron
skilliet until soft and brown, turning frequently to avoid scorching.
Slice the chiles into 1-inch strips, then into a very fine julienne.
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and let sit at
least 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours before serving.
Ancho salsa keeps a few days in the refrigerator.
