1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Place the red bell peppers on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the skins are charred and blistered.
2. Remove the peppers from the oven and place them in a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the peppers steam for about 10 minutes.
3. Once the peppers have steamed, peel off the skins and remove the seeds and stems.
4. In a food processor, combine the roasted red bell peppers, garlic, cumin, smoked paprika, red wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse until the mixture is smooth.
5. With the food processor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the sauce has emulsified.
6. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Serve the Mojo Rojo sauce with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or crusty bread. The bold flavors of the red peppers and garlic will add a delicious kick to any dish. Enjoy!
