Autumn is approaching very fast and this beautiful dish will bring all the warmth you need to survive leaving summer behind. To say this stew is tasty would be a huge understatement. The sauce used as a base is already packed with amazing flavours from guajillos, tomatillos and garlic. Add chorizo and poblanos to that and you get one of the tastiest dishes you’ll have. Not too spicy but it will definitely make you feel warm!
-2 garlic cloves
-1 tsp vegetable seasoning or salt to taste
-1 ½ cups of water
1 In a small saucepan, add the tomatoes, garlic and water. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.
2 While the tomatoes are cooking, rinse the guajillo chillies under running water and then remove the stem and seeds.
3 After 15 minutes, turn off the heat and add the guajillos to the tomatoes and leave them soaking for 10 more minutes.
4 In a blender, add the tomatillos, tomatoes, garlic, guajillos and seasoning/salt. Blend until smooth and reserve.
