Ancho Chile and Bourbon Sauce

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Thomas Fitzpatrick

A wonderful sauce that goes well with everything. I like to add it to rice when cooking. Goes great with pork, chicken and beef.

If you let this sauce get thick enough then use it on quail and grill them, it is to die for. MMMM mmm good. L.R. Beckwith
