Hot Hot Vinegar

Recipe Ingredients

9 chiles de arbol

7 cascabel chiles

1/2 bunch fresh cilantro leaves

2 fresh scallions

3 garlic cloves, halves

3 3/4 cups cider vinegar


In a dry cast iron skillet, toast chiles briefly over medium heat, just until fragrance begins to be released. Place the chiles in a quart bottle or jar. Add cilantro, scallions and garlic, using a wooden spoon handle to help position the ingredients.

In a saucepan, bring the vinegar to a boil, and pour as much of it over the chiles, vegetables and herbs as will fit in the bottle or jar. Cool to room temperature, cover, and store in a dark place for at least 5 days before using.

Sprinkle it over Drunken Beans or quelites, or use it in salsa and hot sauces.
