Rehydrating Dried Red Chile
Here is a quick outline of
how to rehydrate dried red chile:
Select a dozen or so dried chile pods that aren't cracked or damaged and
drop in warm water. Don't touch your eyes or face if you aren't wearing
gloves. It'll burn!
Remove the stems, and seeds but be sure to leave the veins behind as
theat's where the heat is.
Place the clean pods in a pan and boil
in two cups of water.
- As the chile boils, it
will re-hydrate and become fleshy and plump again.
If not fully rehydrated after 10 minutes, take it off the burner and let
it steam for another 10-15minutes.
- Use the rehydrated chile to make enchilada sauce
