This recipe comes from my Grandmothers recipe box. I love this sauce. It works well for wet burritos, enchiladas, and really anything you might want to drowned in it. It is perfectly spicy, the mole adds a subtle richness. It also works great for spicing up your taco meat.
If I had to rank foods in order of my favorites, I would have to say Mexican food is my first love. I could eat it everyday! So in the spirit of celebrating Cinco de Mayo I wanted to share this family favorite with you as well as my technique for making Wet Burritos.
The sauce calls for quite a list of ingredients but outside of the Mole I would bet my first child that you have all the ingredients in your pantry.
I find this sauce comes together quite quickly if you have all your ingredients out and ready. Oh and you will also need a whisk...the whisk is very important to this sauce. You want it nice and smooth. No lumps allowed.
After you have incorporated all of the Beef Stock you can add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
After you have given your sauce one last whiskin'. Plop the lid on the sauce pot and simmer on low for 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
There you have it! Red sauce. Stay tuned......the Wet Burritos will follow the announcement of the Blessed giveaway winner.
