Ingredients
  • 2 ¼ tablespoon Garlic minced

Instructions
  1. In a skillet, over a medium heat toss the chilies frequently until they become pliable and soft but do not let it get burnt.

  2. Now remove the skillet from the heat.

  3. Then place the chilies on a plate, remove the stems and seeds of the chilies and place it in a saucepan.

  4. Add enough hot water, just to cover and bring to boil by covering the lid of the saucepan.

  5. Then remove it from the heat and allow the chilies to soak for about 20 minutes until they turn clumped and soft.

  6. Now in a fine mesh sieve, strain chilies over a bowl and reserve the soaking liquid.

  7. In a blender, add the chilies, onion, garlic, 1 ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon sugar, cumin, allspice, oregano, thyme, vinegar, and clove.

  8. Close the lid of the blender and blend it until it turns smooth.

  9. Add little of chili soaking liquid, as per needed.

  10. NOTE

    The mixture should be thick but smooth.

SERVE
  1. The sauce is ready. Transfer the adobo sauce to a jar and store in the refrigerator for a couple of months.

OUR DINE TABLE
  1. It’s a flavorsome sauce which has a sweetly earthy flavor which once prepared can be canned for a couple of months. It can be used to marinated shrimp, chicken, fish, pork and even for sautéing and seasoning. I especially love to add this sauce to pretty much in any brothy soup for depth and thickness.
