El Potrero Trading Post Basic Red Chile Sauce
using Chile Molido (ground chile)

6T red chile molido
2c chicken stock or water
1t cumin
2T flour
1 dash red wine vinegar

2 garlic cloves
2T cooking oil

1 potato, cubed and cooked (optional)
salt to taste

Pre-soak chile in liquid for 20 minutes. Saute garlic in oil. Add flour and brown by pressing flour flat in skillet. Add liquid, chile and remaining ingredients. Stir and simmer.

The red wine vinegar is the secret ingredient our dad taught us - it makes the flavor come alive! This sauce can be frozen and used later.

Add mashed potato for additional thickness, if desired.
