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.
