Serve this classic Mexican hot sauce with corn chips or tostados. It is also delicious with cooked fish. Garnish with avocados and jicama.

1 (15oz.) can stewed tomatoes
1/2 of a 4-oz. can mild jalapenos
2 fresh green chile or serrano peppers
1/4 of a sweet white onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and give a whirl until blended.
Serves 8 

COOKS NOTE: Mix this sauce with sour cream to create a dip that has a smoother, cooler, and milder taste.

"Cooking is not simply in the tongue, in the palate. It is in the whole body flowing out of the groin and chest through arms and hands."~Edward Espe Brown
