Ingredients

6 Fresh green chiles, roasted over wood chips, peeled

2 roasted bell peppers

3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Spanish Olive Oil

2 Cloves garlic, crushed

3 Large fresh tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped

1 Cup shredded Longhorn or other cheese

Sea Salt and additional heat to taste

Directions

Puree (liquefy) two roasted chiles and both bell peppers, the garlic, and about 3/4 of one tomato (Ro-tel canned can be diced for this) in food processor.
