  • 4 red chillies
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 large onion, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 large fresh tomato, chopped

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Preheat the grill. Line a baking tray with alfoil.
  2. Halve the green capsicum, red capsicum and chillies lengthways and discard stems and seeds. Place on baking tray and brush with olive oil. Roast under the grill until the skin blackens and blisters, 3 to 5 minutes. Place capsicums and chillies in a bowl and cover with cling wrap; allow to steam until the skins loosen, about 10 minutes. Peel off the skins and discard.
  3. Combine the green capsicum, red capsicum, chillies, onion, tomato, garlic, coriander, tinned tomatoes with juice, lime juice, salt, black pepper and beer in a blender. Blend to desired consistency. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
