Here's how to do it

  • Rehydrate the cleaned and grafted dried chiles.
  • Place them in the saucepan with water and bring to a boil.
  • Turn off the heat and leave them there for 5-10 minutes or until they are pliable.
  • Add all the Diabla Sauce ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.

You may not be able to remove all the seeds from the dried chiles. When the sauce is strained, they are all removed.

You can also make this sauce beforehand and cook this dish in no time flat.

Pro Tip: Dried chilies are best stored when frozen. If you do not cook with them often, buy a small bag and store the rest in the freezer for later. They stay for up to a year in a freezer bag with all the air removed.

  • Sil sauces.
  • Set it aside until ready to use.

Filtration helps remove any bits of dried chile left over. This is also your opportunity to taste the sauce for heat and salt.

How to adjust the heat

If you like it spicier, add more chipotle or chile de arbol. If you like it milder, add 1 tablespoon of ketchup to sweetness or add another tomato.
