  • 1 ounce dried chilies de árbol
  • 1 ounce dried chilies pasillas
  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • Pinch of salt


Trim and discard stems from chilies. Microwave on high for about 20 seconds or until chilies are pliable and release their fragrance. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and let rest for 20 minutes. Stir in more salt to taste. Store refrigerated in a sealed container for several weeks.
