    Catisch's Note:

    (This sauce can be prepared up to 5 days ahead, cooled, covered, and refrigerated. Reheat gently before serving.) NOTE: Ranchero sauce is the most important ingredient in Huevos Rancheros. Also, great with grilled steaks or pork chops. It freezes well. Makes 4 cups from Greta and William L. Arrington of Rocking Chair Ranch of Pampa, TX.

      I looked at a lot of ranchero sauce recipes before finding this one and it was just what I wanted. Many of the other recipes were for smooth sauces but I wanted a chunky one with a variety of vegetables and this one fit the bill. Golden Griddle used to have a mediocre sauce on their breakfast buffet that I always thought could be outstanding if it were homemade with some adjustments, and this recipe is it. I accidentally made it hotter than intended because I used the small hot green chili peppers, but most of my guests could handle the heat.

      I like that it keeps for so long and can be served at all temperatures. I served it at a brunch as a warm topping for Christmas Wifesaver but I am going to try it on scrambled eggs and on burgers. Thanks, Catisch.
