Mely adds a small piece of avocado pit to this dish's blended sauce. "I find it thickens the sauce a bit, and some people think it helps temper acidity," she says. We tested with and without the pit with equally delicious results.
If you have a high-performance blender, blend the sauce all at once, adding 2 cups water with the toasted chiles and spices.
