Ata is the Yoruba word for chile pepper, and Nigerian chiles range from the tiny ata wewe to the large ata funfun.  This sauce is served like a relish or dip with many West African dishes, particularly grilled meats.

Ingredients


  • 10 dried red New Mexican chiles, seeds and tems removed, soaked in hot water for 1 hour
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Instructions


Remove the chiles from the water and puree them in a blender or food processor.  Heat the oil in a skillet, add the onion pureed chiles, tomato sauce and salt.  Fry over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add 1 chopped bell pepper and cook with the onion mixture.
