This is a thick, pureed sauce that is pretty hot, but not "stupid." The sugars from the roasted veggies mellow it out and give it a nice flavor.

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. dried cilantro
  • .25 large onion
  • 1 tspn. olive oil
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
