  • 2 chiles
  • 2 medium shallots, peeled
  • 6 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar (red wine vinegar works well here too)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup water, plus more for thinning


  1. Set a rack in the oven as close as possible to the broiler. Preheat broiler on high.
  2. Place chiles, shallots, garlic and cherry tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Broiled the vegetables until blackened all over. Take the pan out occasionally and flip the vegetables to ensure even blackening.
  3. Take the pan from the broiler and set aside the chiles and garlic. Place remaining vegetables in a food processor and let cool. Once the chiles and garlic are cool enough to handle, remove stems, skin and seeds and add the food processor with the rest of the vegetables.
  4. Once cooled, pulse the vegetables a few times, then add sherry vinegar, lime juice, kosher salt and water. Continue pulsing until everything is well combined. The mixture should be chunky.
