Equipment

  • Cast-iron skillet
  • Knife & cutting board

Ingredients
 

  • 8-12 serrano chiles ($0.16)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil ($0.11)
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced ($0.24)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced ($0.04)
  • ½ lime, juiced ($0.06)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce ($0.36)
  • Sea salt to taste ($0.01)

Instructions
 

  • First, preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium. While you’re waiting, lightly roll the chiles to release some spicy flavor from the seeds and veins.
  • Add the chiles to the hot skillet and cook until you see blisters forming on all sides. Make sure to stir them frequently so each side cooks evenly, about 5-6 minutes. Transfer the chiles to a bowl and set that aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then the sliced onion. Sauté until translucent and slightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and chiles back in.
  • Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes, or until the onions are caramelized to your liking. Lastly, mix in the lime juice, soy sauce, and salt to taste.
  • Serve immediately, at room temperature, or chilled with any dish you can think of (tacos, toast, quesadillas, tofu scramble, etc.). Happy eating!

Notes

  • You can also use tamari, liquid aminos, jugo Maggi, salsa inglesa, or even a bit of dark beer.
  • Careful how much salt you use as the soy sauce is already quite salty. If you use reduced-sodium soy sauce, you will need to use more.
