“The New Mexican dried chiles give this puree its bright red color and the anchos give it a rich, raisiny flavor. You can vary the dried chiles if you want to make different kinds of chili pastes.”

Original recipe yields 4 cups

Directions

  1. Make a slit in each of the ancho chiles and New Mexico chiles with a sharp knife, and remove the seeds and stem. Place the chiles in a large saucepan, and add the chicken stock, onion, and garlic. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer until the chiles have softened, about 15 minutes.
  2. Pour the chile mixture into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the mixture moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the chile mixture right in the cooking pot.

This recipe sounds awesome. I have not tried it yet, but I can't wait to make it. I have been looking for sauces such as this and I'm hoping it turns out as good as it sounds
