Makes
2 to 2 1/2 cups

10 to 12 Chipotle Texas Smoked Red Chile pods, buy here
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cups homemade beef stock

 

Methods/steps

Place the chiles on a baking pan and place in a 250 degree F. oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the chiles are toasted, taking care not to let them burn.  Remove the stems and seeds and crumble into a saucepan.

Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

Puree the mixture in a blender until smooth and strain.  If the sauce is too thin, place it back on the stove and simmer until it is reduced to the desired consistency.

Additional Tips

This basic sauce--smoked up with unique red chile pods--can be used in traditional New Mexican or New Southwestern versions of beans, tacos, tamales, and enchiladas.
