4 medium dried New Mexico red chilies
4 medium dried chipotle chilies
1 medium fresh habanero or -- up To 2 Scotch bonnet chilies stemmed and seeded
2 cloves garlic -- up to 6 peeled and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onions
1/3 cup loosely packed fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 cup bourbon -- or 3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cups red wine vinegar

Preparation / Directions:

1. Stem and seed the dried chilies. Place in a skillet and put into a preheated 250-degree oven for about 4 minutes, until they become fragrant. Shake once during the roasting time. Remove from oven and put in just enough hot water (water just below the boiling point) to cover then put a small plate on top to submerge the chilies. Let soak 20 to 30 minutes, until softened. 2. Drain the chilies and chop coarsely. Put into a food processor or blender with the fresh chilies, garlic according to taste, onions, rosemary, salt, bourbon or brown sugar, vinegar and lemon juice. Blend about 3 to 4 minutes, until very smooth. Pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate. Note: The sauce can be used to marinate chicken, pork, ribs, or a meaty fish such as swordfish before grilling.
