  • Serving Suggestion

    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.

  • Storage and Preparation

    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.
