Chef Bernie McDonough serves this salsa recipe with his Enchiladas de Cerdo Guajillo at the Hotel Matilda in San Miguel de Allende. 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss chiles, tomatoes, apple, onion, and garlic in vegetable oil and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Place the roasted ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pan and then add the cumin and orange juice and simmer over low heat until all ingredients are tender. Blend on high in a blender until smooth, and then season again to taste.
