Vegetarian red chile sauce

Yield: 20 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Dried ground red chile; preferably Chimayo; other New Mexico red; or Ancho
1 tablespoon Minced white onion
1 Clove garlic; minced
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon White pepper
4 cups Vegetable broth; preferably, or water
2 tablespoons Cornstarch; dissolved in:
2 tablespoons Water
Additional salt and white pepper to taste

Into a large, heavy saucepan, measure the chile, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Slowly add the broth or water, stirring carefully. Break up any lumps of chile. Cook the mixture over medium heat until warmed through, and add the cornstarch. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The completed sauce should coat a spoon thickly and no longer taste of raw cornstarch.

Serve the sauce warm with enchiladas, burritos, or other dishes. Makes approximately 5 cups.

Vegetarian red chile sauce keeps for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. It also freezes well.
