    I learned this recipe from a lunch truck that comes by my work. I took 2 3 oz. bags of dry Chile De Arbol chilies, break off the stem and break in half and twist to get out the seeds, don't worry if you get some seeds. I put these in my dutch oven with a whole head of garlic, ya dont need to chop the garlic whole cloves are fine also about 4 tablespoons of kosher salt. Just barely cover with water and let simmer for about an hour. On the side chop up a onion white or sweet and a good amount of cilantro. Put this mixture in the blender and add enough tomato juice to blend it. Put this in a bowl. Now take the chili mixture and blend it also, let cool and add to the onion cilantro and mix together. Adjust salt to taste. This stuff rocks. :cool2:

    Hey Ozz...Those chilis look like regular cayennes. Can you confirm or deny this? Just wondering because when I have an abundance of them, I'm always looking for things to use them in. This sounds good.

    Matt, there not as hot as Cayenne's. These make a great salsa. I just went from the recipe off the lunch truck. I already have my own modified version in the works. :wink:
