This recipe will teach you how to make rich flavorful red chile sauce. You'll never go back to buying it from a can ever again...or you'll know what's missing from the canned sauce and fill in the flavor. Sometimes you need sauce in a pinch..I know, I've been there!
Step 1: Ingredients
DISCLAIMER: Red chile sauce will stain your clothes! I suggest using an apron or wearing an old t-shirt when making this recipe. Cuidado! Be Careful!
2 pkgs of California or New Mexico Hatch dried chile pods
3 Garlic cloves
1/4 Cup Flour
1 chicken bouillon cube
Salt (if needed, bouillon cubes can be quite salty)
Fine mesh strainer
Step 2: Boil Bomb!
Fill a pot to about half way with water. Turn your stove to medium high. Add a bouillon cube and break it up so it will dissolve and stir. Remove the stems and shake out the seeds of the chile pods. Give your garlic cloves a good whack with the flat side of your knife to remove the papery skin. Remove the outside skin of the onion and slice in half. Add the chiles, garlic cloves and onion to the pot of warm bouillon water. Let this cook for about 30 minutes or until everything is very soft.
