the appetizer:

Mexican cuisine combines the traditional indigenous foods of the Aztecs and Mayas, like chocolate, corn, tomato, avocado, beans and chile peppers, with the meats, rice and garlic brought to Mexico by the Spanish conquistadores.

Tomato Sauce (Salsa Ranchera)

4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, chopped
4 serrano chile peppers, seeded
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup diced onion

Place the tomatoes, chiles, and garlic in the jar of a blender. Pulse a few times to break up the biggest pieces.

Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onion and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook over medium heat until thickened. This should take about 10 minutes.
