I've made this a lot of years,! LOL This is a sauce with several uses, at least in my house. I use this for enchiladas, for taco sauce,for simmering meats in, it's just a kind of all purpose sauce. It's my go-to Mexican sauce. You'll want to use the correct type of dried chile peppers; the large, dusky red mild ones. If you are unable to find them in your market, try a Mexican market. This recipe can get rather messy, but it's so worth it! It freezes well, so try doubling it. If you can't find dried ancho chiles, you may certainly use dried pasilla peppers, or a mixture of all three. If you cannot find Mexican oregano, regular will do.
