 Ingredients List

  • 5 -(up to)
  • 10 New Mexico or Anaheim chiles
  • Oil
  • Finely chopped or pressed
  • -garlic
  • 2 tb Flour
  • Couple pinches of oregano


Okay, here is mine (from memory).

Take 5 to 10 dried New Mexican chiles or dried Anaheim chiles (mix them up
to match the heat you want, NM chiles are typically hotter, I normally use
all NM chiles). Place these in a pan of water and boil until they are
softened. Remove them from the water, remove the stems. Drop them into a
blender, add about a cup to a cup and a half of the water they were boiled
in and blend. Press this through a strainer into a bowl. Rinse the blender
and the strainer with another 1/2 cup of the water used to boil the chiles.

In a frying pan, heat a little bit of oil and add some finely chopped or
pressed garlic and saute until the oil is fragrant. Add about 2 Tbs of
flour and stir gently until the flour just begins to brown. Pour in the
strained pepper liquid and stir until it thickens. Add a couple of pinches
of oregano. This comes close to two cans of enchilada sauce, but is much
hotter than any commercial variety I have tried. I'll double check my
ingredient list, but won't be online until Monday.
