      First I cut the recipe down to 1 cup yield. Chipotle powder replaced ancho powder.
      We used this to make fluffy egg tostadas: corn tortillas, eggs, arugula and spinach,
      grated carrot, cilantro and Mesa red sauce. Served with a side of pinto beans. Very good!

      I love this red sauce recipe! I lost my Rebar Cookbook after not remembering who I loaned it to. Was so excited to find the recipe here. Thank you! It's a perfect balance of spice and flavor. Made it tonight with chicken and zucchini enchiladas. Yummy!

      Mmm, spicy and flavorful; this is delicious! I omitted the salt and ground up a corn tortilla to use for the masa harina... as I couldn't find loose masa harina, but the corn tortillas were made from it :) Thanks for sharing!
