If you sautée them, you have to use oil, which will tone down the fruity flavour. NOT that I'm against using oil - I've got some other hot, hot HOT stuff which uses oil - it simply makes for a different flavour.

I'd also agree totally with jennyema - if it's smoked, everything will be smoked.
Now Habanero/Serrano would be an interesting mix...

Well im roasting the serranos so i figure with the smokiness of the chipotles it could be very tasty.

I am also adding some fresh ground cumin to the mix.

I will let you guys know how it turns out.

im using

8 Serranos, roasted
2 Chipotles
few T of onion
few T of carrot
1 T of garlic
few squeezes lime
fresh ground cumin
fresh minced cilantro
sea salt



Just curious, for those proportions i listed, how much vinegar/water do you think i should add?

do get a food mill, they are real useful. not as mangling as a food processor, but very effective.
