There are several sauces that I would consider essential to make Mexican dishes taste better, these sauces are packed with lovely flavours of chillies and spices.
Today I am sharing with you an easy recipe for a Guajillo sauce that can be use for enchiladas, chilaquiles, broths, with meats, etc! It only has 5 ingredients and those are now very easy to find here in London.
Makes 2 cups of Guajillo Sauce
- 6 guajillos cleaned, seeds & stems off
- 4 medium tomatoes
- 1 small onion peeled
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 1 tbsp salt
- pinch of ground cumin
- two cups of water
Place all the vegetables and dried chillies in a sauce pan and add two cups of water. Bring it to a boil. Boil for 10 min to medium heat.
Transfer everything to a blender and add salt and pinch of cumin. Pour back the sauce into the sauce pan and cook for further 5 min, so all the ingredients combine well.
You can use this simple sauce for chilaquiles, enchiladas, pozole, or pork in chile colorado.
*Tip: If you want your salsa a bit spicy, just add some arbol chillies.
