Whilst I was visiting the USA I had a chili dip that was made by some Mexican friends... it involved baking whole chillies in the oven and then? My memory escapes me (perhaps it was the wine). Anyway, I am unable to recall how the recipe was finished, but it ended up a delicious (albeit hot) dip. Can anyone help with the recipe - or similar please?
I have some questions that might help us find something similar. There are so many different types of chilis that it's hard to know. Was it red or green? Was it a salsa (chunky) type dip or a smooth one more like a sauce?
Sorry, I didn't take into account the variety of chilis available, and I have no idea what type our host used. Judging by the colour of the dip I think our host used a combination of both red and green. The consistency was on the thin side - more like an 'oil' I would say, and dark similar to a brown vinegar colour. Due to the lack of specific information available, I would be happy for a recipe that is somewhat similar (not discounting one with a salsa or other consistency). Thanks so much for your interest.
If all else fails, how about taking a regular dip that you like and adding a few drops of chili pepper oil?
Tabasco and Louisiana style hot sauce are just a few products to get you started.
Here are some good links:
I looked under "Roasted Chili Salsa recipes" and "Roasted Chili Pepper Recipes".
It's possible that they used green chilis and red chilis, roasted them, then cleaned out the seeds and scooped out the pulp. There are so many, it's hard to know but they sure make good dips and salsas in the Southwest.
If you can write to your friends and ask them, then you would know exactly what you are looking for.
