yay! this was just what I was looking for--so many red sauce recipes have tomatoes in them :( Thank you for the reminder to wrap plastic or use metal. I keep a box of food grade gloves in the kitchen for whenever I'm in the vicinity of a hot pepper. For those who haven't attempted to make their own chile sauce, don't be daunted. This is great. The water measurement is right-on. Some folks like a real thick paste; so add as little as will work the processor--you can always thin the sauce down at a later time. I kept this for a week in the fridge. Good for tamales or in Tortilla Soup.
Perfect New Mexican Red Chile Sauce recipe! I live in NM & I make this often. It is delicious!
