TEQUILA SALSA
All you Survivor fans should remember this guy! He graduated to his own show on the Food TV Network. Here is a yummy he found somewhere down in Mexico!
Prep.Time: 40 minutes
Recipe By : Keith Famie's Food Adventures (Food TV 2/9/03)
Heat Scale = Medium

1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium white onion, chopped
2 cloves peeled garlic, chopped
6 plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 dried pasilla chiles
1 ancho chile, broken up
2 cups water
1 slice white bread, dried and crumbled
1/4 cup tequila
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a 2-quart saucepot, heat the olive oil. Saute the onion and garlic for 2 minutes or until translucent. Add the tomatoes and dried chiles. Continue to saute for 2 minutes. Add the bread and water, stir in well. Cook the mixture for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the chiles are soft and cooked.

Add the cooked mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour through a strainer to catch any large pieces and seeds. Return the strained salsa to the saucepot and add the tequila. On low-medium heat, bring the sauce to a simmer for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm with freshly cooked or purchased tortilla chips.
Yield: 3 cups
