Roasted Cashew Tomato Salsa
You can find dried chiles at international markets, such as New Grand Mart.
⅓ cup cashews
6 dried cascabel chiles or 3 pasilla chiles, seeds removed
2 morita chiles
4 large tomatoes, cored
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350°. Arrange cashews on one side of a rimmed baking sheet and chiles on the other. Toast until chiles are fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove chiles from baking sheet, then continue roasting nuts, tossing once, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool. Remove and discard stems from chiles.
Increase oven temperature to 450°. Roast tomatoes on a clean rimmed baking sheet until skin is browned and beginning to separate from flesh, 30–35 minutes. Transfer to a blender and add garlic, lime juice, and salt; blend until smooth. Add chiles and blend until coarsely chopped. Add cashews and pulse until coarsely chopped, about 5 pulses.
Do Ahead: Salsa can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before serving.
