Salsa Negra
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
2 servings
This is a distinctive sauce with a deep sweet-smoky flavor that matches its almost black color.The striking, almost burnt, flavor is achieved by deep frying dried chipotles ,before soaking them in a brown sugar bath, and then simmering the sauce to perfection.The final searing and simmering of the sauce is essential to achieving a deep and well balanced flavor and should not be skipped.This recipe uses chiles moritas-small chipotles that are wrinkled and blackish(the type you usually find pickled in adobo),not the small tan colored chipotles.You absolutely cannot sub canned chipotles in this recipe.This recipe is originally from a Rick Bayless cookbook(that's why its so good!).
