    2. 2
      ADD 1/3 cup flour to the saute mixture; STIR the mixture as it cooks, until it is deep golden in color (mixture will be paste-like).
    3. 3
      PLACE into the large bowl of a food processor enough fresh ripe Roma tomatoes to yield approximately 1 1/2 cups pureed, and one stem-removed seeded fresh jalapeno pepper; PROCESS both until pulverized.

      This recipes spells everything out, it's easy to follow and when I served it everyone thought I was a magician. It made the presentation of the World's Greatest Chile Relleno beautiful and the flavors were wonderful. If you haven't ever tried making your own sauce this is the sauce to start with. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.

      I loved this sauce. It's perfect for rellenos, but would also be delicious on huevos rancheros. I made impromptu, simple stacked enchiladas by layering cheese and this sauce on corn tortillas and heating in the microwave. Delicious. It's kind of addictive. It would also be a good baking sauce for chicken. I'm glad I found this after looking at other recipes that sounded too plain and bland. Love it!
