Cut the peppers into boats and clean out the insides. In a pot, heat all of the other ingredients over medium-high heat, until thickened and bubbling, about 3 minutes.

Mexican Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Mexican Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.

Mexican Wine Pairing
