 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      lbs.          Anaheim or New Mex. chiles -- Roast -- peel, deseed
    1      lb.           Yellow Hungarian Wax chiles -- seeded and chopped
    1                    Serranos and jalapeno -- seeded and chopped
    2 1/2  lbs.          Tomatillos -- slice 1/8 thick
    7      lbs.          Green tomatoes -- slice 1/4 thick
      1/2  bunch         Cilantro -- rough chop
    4      cloves        Garlic
    1      med.          White onion -- chopped
      1/4  cup           Lime juice
      1/4  cup           Apple cider vinegar
    2      Tbs.          Salt
    4      Tbs.          Corn Starch
 
 Heat a large cast iron skillet to hot and toast the tomatoes and  tomatillos
 without any oil.  Do just one layer at a time and give each  slice a nice
 dark brown color on both sides without burning.  Remove  when toasted to a
 glass bowl.  Do not deglaze the pan.
 In a blender, combine the onion, cilantro, chiles, tomatoes, garlic and
 tomatillos in batch sizes to half-fill the blender jar.  Pur|e.  If any
 dark brown liquid collects in the bottom of the toasted tomato and
 tomatillo bowl, add this to the last blender load.
 Mix the cornstarch in the lime juice/vinegar.  In a large stewing pot,
 combine the blender loads, add the cornstarch mixture and heat until  the
 sauce comes to a low boil, mixing constantly.  Be careful here, if  you
 don't mix constantly the thick sauce will tend to erupt in hot  little
 geysers of taco sauce that could burn you.  Allow sauce to cool  and add
 salt to taste.  Transfer to clean jars, filling them 3/4 full  and freeze
 what you can't use in a few weeks.  Be careful not to fill  the jars too
 full or they'll break when you freeze them.
 I made a batch of sauce last year and it tastes just fine after a year  in
 the freezer.  The sauce keeps OK in my refrigerator for at least a  month.
 * Adjust heat level to your personal taste.  The La Victoria sauce is  mild.

 NOTES : Here is a recipe that I think comes close to the taste and texture of
 La Victoria’s Green Taco sauce.
