Stuffed Ancho Chilies

Stuffed Ancho Chilies

We went to a fall festival this weekend and bought pretty ancho chilies at the farmers market there! I thought stuffing them and topping them with a smoky oven roasted tomato sauce would be fun! It turned out super yummy and simple!

2 containers grape tomatoes

8 cloves of garlic

1 small white onion

1 teaspoon chili powder

Instructions:

Place the tomatoes in casserole and add chopped onion and whole garlic cloves.

Dress the vegetables in olive oil and mix in the spices.

Bake the dish in a 400 degree oven until the tomatoes are slightly charred and tender.

Use a potato masher and blend sauce completely.
