New Mexico Red Chile Sauce - Home Style
2 Tablespoons oil 3 Tablespoons onion, chopped fine 1 clove garlic, minced fine 1/4 teaspoon oregano 2 Tablespoons flour 1 Tablespoon cocoa 1/2 cup powdered red chile 2 1/2 cups water 1 teaspoon salt
This sauce can be made at home and frozen in single serving containers to be used on trips without the mess of cooking from scratch on the road. I like to freeze in ice cube trays and pop out into a zip-top bag to save space in the RV freezer.
Serves: 6 to 8
You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
