Category: Mexican, Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 15 lg Dried chili peppers
  • 4 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 2 tb Bacon drippings or olive
  • -oil, or shortening


Remove stems and seeds from dried peppers. Place on a single layer in a
baking sheet and roast in a 350! oven for 2-5 minutes until they have a
sweet roasted aroma. Check frequently to prevent burning. Try to avoid deep
inhalation. Remove from oven and soak peppers in enough water to cover,
about 5 cups, for 30 minutes until cool. Transfer the peppers and 2 1/2 c
liquid to a blender. Add garlic, cumin and salt. Reserve remaining liquid.
Cover, and blend till smooth.

In a 2 quart saucepan, cook and stir flour in bacon drippings over medium
heat till light brown. Carefully stir in pureed chili mixture. Simmer
uncovered for 5 to 10 minutes until slightly thickened, being careful of
splatters. If sauce is too thick, add additional soaking liquid, up to 1
cup to make desired consistency.
