Step 1
Heat oil over medium heat in a medium skillet.

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.

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