5 dried red New Mexico Chilies
1 clove garlic
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt (more to taste, I ended up using about 1 tsp total)
1. Soak for 30 min in boiling water.
2. Blend. Add cumin and Mexican Oregano to taste. (optional)
3. Cook on stove on medium heat for a minute.
Enchilada sauce is done!
Note: New Mexico red chilies look hot but they are NOT super spicy. I find they have less heat than most jalapenos. YMMV.
First taste: OMG OMG OMG this is so amazing.WOWOWOWOWOWOW! I need to move to NM IMMEDIATELY. Wow.
