Spicy Ancho Chili with Tomatillos

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor combine tomatillos, cilantro, ancho peppers, and jalapeno pepper. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Transfer tomatillo mixture to a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Pour tomatoes into blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Add pureed tomatoes to mixture in cooker; set aside.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
