INGREDIENTS
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or grapeseed oil

  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 pound roma tomatoes, diced

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

MAKE IT

Step 1

Heat oil over medium heat in a medium skillet.

Step 2

Add onions; cook, stirring frequently, until onions are light brown. Add garlic; cook for a minute.

Step 3

Add tomatoes, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.

Step 4

While tomatoes cook, turn another burner on low heat and place guajillo chiles directly on burner and char until crisp and 75% charred. Set aside and allow to cool. Remove stems.

Step 5

Transfer tomato mixture and chiles to blender; cover. Blend from low to high in 30-second intervals. Blend on high until smooth.

Step 6

Transfer to bowl and stir in Media Crema. Check seasoning and add more if desired and enjoy!
