Beautiful AND delicious side dish for just about anything.
Contributor: Carolyn Edwards
Makes 12 chiles
1 white onion
4 tablespoons olive oil
12 guero chiles, washed and left whole with the stems on (find at whole foods or farmer’s markets — I’m sure most peppers would work great)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup lemon juice
• Peel onion and chop into thin strips.
• Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and caramelized. Reserve the onions.
• Put olive oil in a pan and cook the chiles over medium-high heat without turning too often, until they are blackened in places.
• Remove the pan from the heat. Put the onions and chiles in a bowl, add the soy sauce, water, and lemon juice, and serve hot.
