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. File ftp://ftp.idiscover.co.uk/pub/food/mealmaster/recipes/mmdjaxxx.zip
