Nancy's Tamale Sauce

YIELD: 12 (1/2 cup servings)
POINTS/serv: 0

You HAVE to try this!! Very good on tamales, but has potential for many other foods and dishes.

1 large onion (1 pt), chopped
2 cloves garlic (0 pts), minced
2 cerrano peppers (0 pts), seeded and roughly chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes (2 pts)
cilantro (0 pts)
salt and pepper to taste (0 pts)
cumin (optional) (0 pts)

Saute onion, garlic, and peppers.
Add tomatoes, cilantro, and seasonings.
Heat until simmering.
Blenderize -- in small batches -- until smooth. Serve warm.

NOTE: Handle the cerrano peppers with gloves! You will burn yourself from the juice and seeds other wise.
I'm guessing at the serving amount and I seriously doubt that the onion and tomato would add up unless you decided that you and only you were allowed to eat the sauce -- and all at once. LOL.
