Place a dry cast iron frying pan over medium heat, when hot, toast the chillies first inside then outside until just toasted and smelling fantastic.
Place in a bowl and cover with hot tap water, place a small plate on top of the chillies to keep them submerged, let soak for 20 minutes or so or until soft.
Using the same frying pan over medium heat place the tomatillos, onion and garlic. Roast the tomatillos on all sides until soft and black in places, flip the onion when it becomes chard and cooked, flip the garlic when black in places. (if using tinned tomatillos add them to the jug below without roasting)
Remove the vegetables as they are cooked to a jug suitable for a stick blender. Drain and add the chillies, salt and sugar if using.
Blend until very smooth, scrape into a bowl and stir in a couple of tbsp of mezcal, taste, add more if needed, reserve.
Cool Chile Updates
Delivery to France/ Denmark/ Netherlands is now available through the website. We will be using Fedex and costs have increased slightly, along with delivery times. It is possible you will also receive a duty and tax invoice from customs, we are yet to find an exact science to this but so far our customers haven't received an invoice from customs. We will be experimenting week by week with other countries in Europe. If you wish to place an order to Europe please contact us directly and we can arrange.
Deliveries to Italy we can't facilitate currently. We have experienced many product restrictions and hefty government charges.
