Homemade Red Sauce

Homemade Red Sauce

What you’ll need:

Guajillo chili pods (you can find these in the mexican section, they are dried and in a bag)

1 Can whole tomatoes with juice

1 medium white onion coarsly chopped

2 garlic cloves

1 jalapeno seeded and de-veined (use 1/2 if you want a mild sauce)

2 tsp sea salt

What you’ll do:

Fill a medium sauce pan halfway with water and bring to a boil

Remove the stems and dump the seeds out (it’s okay if they don’t all come out)

Add the chili pods; depending on how you want it add between 4-8 (I used 8 and it was a hot sauce)

Boil until soft about 10 minutes

Add tomatoes, onion, garlic,  jalapeno, chili pods, 1/4 C of water that you boiled the chili pods in and 1/2 of the salt in a blender (I use a Blendtec) and combine until smooth

Taste, add the other half of salt if wanted

Enjoy!!

Enjoy!
