Ranchero Sauce

"Ranchero Sauce" (page 550) is a cooked salsa, or a chunky tomato sauce, meant to be served warm. Canned crushed tomatoes are jazzed up with sautéed onion, garlic, and jalapeño (skip the oil, use just a little bit of water instead to soften), seasoned with cumin and chili powder and diced green chilies (the mild canned variety), and cooked stovetop for several minutes. Lastly, fresh cilantro is stirred in. This sauce is especially good over creamy polenta, or as a dip for oven baked corn tortilla chips.
