make a big batch and either freeze it or bottle it. Red chile sauce can be used for many things like enchiladas, chile colorado, tortilla soup...or whatever you like!
First....take the dired red chile, I used around 2 lbs. for this particular batch, clean the chile
by removing the stems and seeds. Rinse with water to get any dirt off, and then place in a large
stock pot. Cover with hot water and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Some like to let it sit over night
but it is not necessary.
This is what it will look like. The chile becomes soft.
Remove chile from water, be sure to save the water, you will need it.
Place chile in a blender, with 1 clove of garlic, 1 t. salt and 1 t. sugar. Blend until desired consistency is reached, adding the reserved chile water as you blend.
I ususally fill the blender about 1/2 full with chile. Remember that it is hot.
This is what you will end up with. Pour into a strainer to separate out the skin and seed.
You will need to scrape, pushing through the chile sauce.
This is what you will be left with. It should look dry.
And there you have it! Homemade Red Chile Sauce.
