Red Guajillo Sauce

Guajillo chillies are one of the msot commpnly used dried chilies in Mexican cooking. Long, slightly cureved and red about 4 to 6 inches long. They are slightly spice and sweet with some smokey flavors. This sauce is great as a chili sauce, on meat. or spread on the dinner plate for added color.  It can also be used in the bottom of a martini glass with chilled cooked shrimp.

  • 1 1/2 ounces dried Guajillo chilies, (around 6)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 serrano chilies
  • 2 vine ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or orange juice

Cut the stems off the Guajillo chiles and take the seeds out. Place them in a bowl of boiling water  ( put a small plate on top of them to submerge them). Soak around 30 minutes.

In a cast iron pan lightly brown the serranos, and garlic

In a blender, add all ingrediednts and puree.

Taste and adjust to your palate. Can last in refrigerator around a week! Makes 2 cups!

About Skinny Fat Kids

I am a fat kid at heart. I don’t start a day without planning a meal; whether it is cooking with friends or trying out a new spot. It might have something to do with being a Mexican/Italian.. Since I was young I loved to help out in the kitchen and was open to all types of food. I appreciate what cooking comes along with… Family, friends and times you will never forget. Food for me is something that you can make taste good even though it is healthy! People have no idea how easy it is to throw together a perfectly well balanced meal that provides them with all the essential nutrients one needs. Each of us have your unique genetic needs, tastes, backgrounds which can be factored into your food and nutrition plan. “Change is one constant in our lives.” You can rid disease and illness through food. Food is something people do not clearly understand. I strongly believe in cooking with local, seasonal, organic, and nutrient-rich ingredients as best as you can. It is essential to eat only grass fed dairy and meat because they provide more essential nutrients as well as high levels of vitamins. Having a garden and knowing where your food comes from is essential! I owe a lot to my mom who many can attest that she is a GREAT entertainer. She seems to always be having a “dinner party” and always throws together something delicious. My objective in this blog is to share my love and knowledge of food and cooking with all you peeps. I want to give you all ideas on how easy it is to eat healthy and make food taste good. I want the standard american diet to be something of the past… TBC
