Chicken with Red Chile Sauce and Sausage (Pollo con Salsa Rojo y Chorizo)
May 15, 2010

This was great and very authentic tasting. As a previous post said it has that "dusky" flavor, earthy, which is what separates real mexican food from a chalupa from taco bell. The dried peppers are the key. One thing I will say is make sure you really grind the peppers finely in your food processor for several minutes. I don't think I did this enough and was left with lots of little pieces of the dried pepper skin in the sauce, which are tough and fibrous, like having slivers of crab cartalige in your crabcakes if you don't pick over the meat enough. Also add your salt at the end to avoid oversalting if your chorizo is salty. I took the advice of other posts and added one chipotle pepper for heat. Really this was a great sauce as far a flavor goes. I boned and shredded the chicken back into the sauce then served it wrapped in warm flour tortillas. Thanks for the recipe!
