Broiled Tomatoes (Mexican) Preparation

Many Mexican recipes call for tomatoes to be asados (roasted). Traditionally they are put onto a hot comal and cooked until the skin is wrinkled and brown and the flesh is soft right through–this takes about 20 to 25 minutes for an 8 ounce tomato. However, since this method is very messy, it is best to line a shallow metal pan with foil and put the tomatoes in it. Place them under a hot broiler–do not have the flame too high or the tomato will burn without cooking through–and turn them from time to time so that they cook through evenly–the skin will be blistered and charred. A medium tomato will take about 20 minutes. Blend the tomato, skin, core, and seeds to a fairly smoothe sauce. The skin and core give both body and flavor to the sauce. And never mind if the skin ~is- charred; that adds character, too. If the skin is very badly blackened and hard in places, then remove a little of it. This method of cooking tomatoes makes for a very rich-flavored sauce. FromThe Cuisines of Mexico by Diana Kennedy, 1972.
