    veruca salt's Note:

    My husband is from Mexico, and I am always in search of authentic Mexican food. This recipe came from his mother who is still a resident of Mexico City. Don't let this recipe's many ingredients and steps throw you. It is as simple to prep as it is to cook. We always like our food a little spicy, so I don't always take out all the chilies, but if you do have kids who are eating this,don't let the chili scare you, once removed the sauce is very tame, but very flavorful.

      My husband LOVED this! It was easy to prepare and smelled wonderful while cooking. I pulled the chiles out before making the sauce. Thanks for sharing!

      Delicious! My four year old granddaughter loved it!! I cooked it with the peppers, but removed them before making the sauce. It was still spicy.

      pretty good stuff! I only had dried garlic, so I want to try it again with fresh; I'm sure it will be better. We sliced up leftovers and ate it with tortillas, onions and peppers "fajita" style, for another meal, and that was good, too. It was spicy enough for me, but hubby and my son wanted more heat. Thanks for posting!
