 Ingredients List

  • 3 Ancho Chiles
  • 3 Pasilla Chiles
  • 2 Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 sm Onion, minced
  • 4 tb Lard or margarine (lard is
  • -better for the taste buds,
  • -if not
  • For your body)
  • 4 tb Flour
  • 3 c Chicken or beef stock (use
  • -chicken for cheese or
  • Chicken enchiladas, beef for
  • -beef enchiladas)
  • 1 ts Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 ts Cumin


Place the chiles on a cookie sheet, and roast in a 350 degree oven until
slightly toasted (when you can smell them, they're done). Remove from the
oven, and slit open. Remove the seeds and veins, then cover the chiles with
boiling water. Allow to sit for about 30 minutes. remove the chiles from
the water (reserve water), and scrape the pulp from the chiles. Discard the
skins (which can give the mixture a bitter flavor.)

Return the chile pulp to the soaking water and reserve.

Saute the garlic and onion in the lard until very soft but not browned.
Stir in the flour, and the stock. Stir until thickened, then add the chile
pulp mixture. Add the spices, and simmer until thickened. Place the mixture
in a blender, and blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt. If you
want a hotter mixture, add cayenne to taste.
