When I lived in Mexico this was one of my favourite dishes. Toasted sesame seeds and blanched almonds are puréed and cooked with chillies, olives and capers.
Guero chillies are small and yellow, giving medium heat. They also go by the simpler term "yellow hot chilli". If you're unable to find this variety, use a Hungarian wax chilli or poblano.
This was just wonderful!!! - 31 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
the yellow pepper (guerro) added a nice spice to the sauce, however the seaseame seeds be very carefull in warming them, I reccomend 2 min I a found out the seeds are what set the sauce a success or failure,so I reccomend 2 min max so that the oils in seeds are released... no roasting required!!.. was not a big hit in my Mexican family.... something is missing its to grainy for my taste. - 07 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is not a bad recipe but it just didn't knock our socks off. The color is not very appetizing. With some tinkering, it might be a decent filling for a burrito. - 23 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
