“I made this sauce one day by fooling around with a recipe in "Border Cooking." I had on hand some great homemade chicken broth and a fresh batch of my Diablo Dust (chile powder made with guajillos and anchos). A good quality chile powder like Gephardt's works nicely, and canned broth should be fine, although, I think homemade is superior. Use this sauce for huevos rancheros, egg dishes, burritos, chimichangas, enchiladas, etc. It is not a table sauce, but is best for topping hot foods.”
