New Mexico Red


Any time I try a Mexican restaurant, I get enchiladas with red sauce. Very few places stack up to the sauce from El Monterey in Clovis, NM. El Monterey has been closed for a long time, but you can still get the sauce mix online. But you can only buy 12 packages at a time, and that’s expensive!
My mom found a recipe that claims to replicate El Monterey. The sauce is basically flour, chilli powder and some spices.
However, it’s hard to get the right flavor without the right kind of chilli powder. Well…
I found this package of awesome New Mexico red chile powder at a Spice Merchant shop in Marquette,  MI. It’s the perfect main ingredient for some New Mexico style enchilada sauce! My initial batch was decent. A good start, for sure!
