  6. I drain my chilies at this point. Be VERY careful not to breath in any of the fumes. (If you can handle LAVA HOT) you may use 1 1/2 c of the soaking liquid instead of chicken broth. Place the drained chilies in a blender with the following ingredients and blend until smooth being CAREFUL not to breath any of the fumes. 1 1/2 c chicken broth. 2 cloves minced garlic. 1/2 tsp salt.
  7. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl pushing the sauce through with a spoon or rubber spatula..
