Three-Pepper Salsa

Tomatoes and peppers

This spicy Three-Pepper Salsa with poblano peppers is not for those who cannot take the heat.


1-1/2 cup boiling water
3 dried ancho chilies or 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 large poblano chilies
1 large yellow pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons minced seeded serrano Chile
1/4 teaspoon alt


Combine water and ancho chilies in a small bowl; cover anchos, and let stand for 30 minutes or until soft. Drain well; seed and chop.

Preheat broiler. Cut poblanos and bell pepper in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place poblanos and bell pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand.

Broil for 10 minutes or until blackened. Place them in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel and dice poblanos and bell pepper.

Combine anchos, roasted poblanos and bell pepper, tomato, and the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; cover salsa, and chill.
