I make my own enchilada sauces and have never used tomatillo in the red chili sauces so I wasn't sure about this one. What s surprise. This is soo good. I did a couple of things different. Rather than steam the chilies I simmered them in a just enough water just to cover them (do not throw out the liquid from the chilies) then added the remaining ingredients except chicken base. You do not need it. The flavour is wonderful without it. I did an extra 2 garlic cloves and some fresh oregano. After I removed from the heat I added 2/3 of 15 ounce can of tomato sauce let cool and then blended it in the blender. Also You do not need to remove the seeds from the chilies. I am going to be making this ALL the time and it is an excellent salsa roja with chips. Thank you for sharing!
This sauce is very delicious. I love the addition of tomatillos. It's a red sauce that gives a slight nod to a green sauce. I have used ancho when I didn't have pasilla, and a combo of both, sometimes I add a few guajillo or california chiles depending on what I have on hand or if I want a slight kick. There is wiggle room. This tastes great as is and with other chile improvisations. I press the blended mixture through a sieve and come out with a beautiful velvety sauce. I eat this with enchiladas, drizzled on quesadillas, migas, fried eggs, I dip chicken in it...so good. Thank you so much for this recipe!
Very good red enchilada sauce in which I followed directions fully since it was my first time trying this one. While my husband loved it.. I found it to be needing a bit more of a heat kick.. it was really mild. I found this to be so easy to make and so much better than canned.. I will always make my own, from now on. Thanks for the recipe!
This is a good basic recipe for me but I have a few changes: I sauté an anaheim pepper and the onions, garlic rather than boil it first; then throw it and the tomatoes & tomatillos all in to puree it all; then back in the pan to heat together, adding lime juice and cilantro & seasonings (along with the chicken bouillon). Fabulous!!! Sufina
