Toasting Chiles in an Oven
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree. Wipe chiles, remove stem and shake out seeds. Place the chiles in a single layer on a cookie sheet or similar and put into the oven for 3-4 minutes, turning once to ensure they do not burn.

Toasting chiles on the Stovetop
Wipe chiles, remove stem and shake out seeds. Heat a dry skillet on the stove over medium high heat. When hot, press the chiles, one at time, onto the hot surface with a spatula for a second or two. Turn and toast second side. Remove from skillet.

Pureeing Chiles
Puree when you want to make a silky smooth sauce, stew, soup or salsa. After rehydrating chiles, place them into a food processor or a blender and add hot water or stock. Add just enough liquid to allow the blender to operate smoothly. Force the resulting puree through a fine mesh strainer or sieve for a smooth sauce and add to your recipe.
