Red Chile Puree

Recipe from: Stephanie da Silva
Servings: About 2 cups

9 dried New Mexico or California chiles
2 cups water
1 small onion, cut into chunks
2 cloves garlic

Arrange chiles on a large baking sheet and cook in a 300°F oven until chiles smell toasted, about 4 minutes. Let cool slightly. Discard stems and seeds. In a 3 to 4 quart pan, combine chiles, water, onion and garlic; cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chiles are very soft, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. In a blender or food processor, whirl chile mixture until smooth. Rub purée through a fine strainer and discard residue.
