Chile New Mexico is a mild chilli with a clean heat.
Cultivated in the south western US state of New Mexico, these earthy, zesty chillies define New Mexican cuisine and when dried, are often used to make the region’s popular and distinctive red sauce.
Make a red sauce (‘Chile Colorado’) by deseeding and destemming New Mexico chillies then adding to a pan with garlic, onion and Mexican oregano and enough water to cover. Boil for 10 minutes then drain and blend with a splash of water adding vinegar and salt to taste. Stew braising beef in the sauce until tender, or fold through eggs before scrambling.
Lightly toast then rehydrate New Mexico chillies to release their flavour. Wipe clean and remove stems and seeds. Open out flat and toast briefly in a dry pan on a medium heat until fragrant, then soak in just boiled water for 15 minutes. Drain and blend to a paste with a splash of water, then strain through a sieve before using. Always wash your hands after handling chillies!
Store in a cool and dry place. Avoid exposure to light.
