OK, I've never "roasted" anything except a cut of beef called a roast before in my life. The recipe says to remove stems and seeds from the dried ancho chili's and roast under the broiler for 2 minutes on each side. I did that and nearly choked on the smell, had to leave the kitchen area completely just to breath, open all my windows and turn on fans to get the smoke out of the house. I think
they're burnt, but having never done it before...is it supposed to be that bad? Have I ruined them? Do I need to start over?
sigh...i'll never be a "good" cook!
