3 big ripe beefsteak or 6-8 roma tomatoes

1 medium white onion

3-4 cloves garlic, unpeeled

Roast; it takes about 10-15 minutes all told.

Cool, peel, and puree in food processor with:

1 tsp kosher salt

½ tsp Mexican oregano

1 tsp ground cumin

1-3 chipotles en adobo, depending on size and your heat tolerance (start small -- they can be HOT)

Heat a Dutch oven or sauce pot, and add about 2 Tbsp of cooking oil (something bland). Dump puree in, and saute, stirring, for about five minutes over medium high heat. reduce heat, add water/chicken or pork stock to thin to your liking (start with ½ a cup, and add more if you like), and simmer for maybe 15 minutes.
