      Great recipe! We substituted vegetable broth for the chicken stock and upped the amount a bit to get a more saucy consistency. It turned out awesome!
      UPDATE: substituted an 8oz can on tomato sauce for the tomato paste, and it was much improved.

      This is my go to sauce. It is easy, tasty and quick. Since I am gluten free, I always leave the flour out and never have a problem with it being thick enough. I like it thick so this works well, but if you like a thin sauce like out of the can thin, you could probably get away with adding another cup and half.

      This is what I call a GRG (Great Recipe for Gringos). These are recipes that help free us from the bondage of bottled and jarred sauces. Tonight was the second time my fiancee and I have tried this sauce, and, while tasty, we found two main issues. One, the amount of tomato paste made it a little too sweet for our tastes. Two, we felt it needed a little bit more heat than what just the chili powder was bringing to the party. So, we used a 6 oz. can of tomato paste and 4 oz. of plain canned tomato sauce to cut down on the sweetness, and "kicked it up a notch" (Sorry Emeril. Please, don't sue me.) with some habanero hot sauce. For those of you who like it somewhere in the middle, a teaspoon (give or take) of cayenne would do wonders. Buena suerte mis amigos en la cocina.
