Santa Fe red sauce is never tomato based. This particular recipe is easy to make, contains no fat, and strikes all the right notes. You can make it as mild or hot as you like. I make up a big pot and use it in chile, on enchiladas, in posole and other soups and stews, plus chile conqueso. I buy Chimayo ground red chile when I can get it, but the red chile powder available in packages in the grocery store will suffice.
Makes: 5 cups chile sauce Preparation time: 30 minutes
I'll be posting a few recipes that use this sauce, so stayed tuned. If you find more uses, I'd love to hear about them in the posted comments.
Good cooking to you!
