I could not find the chili powder but I did find the dried New mexican chile so ground them in a spice grinder..I de-seeded them but would either add jalapeno or leave the seeds in for some spice...it is well worth the effort to make the sauce and I used chicken stock...I would use a nice re-fried bean rather then the pinto beans as I found them hard to mash...but will make this again as the flavor was excellent
Cheese Enchiladas with Red Chile Sauce
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
Intense, earthy and absolutely addictive, New Mexico’s cheese enchiladas showcase red chile sauce at its most elemental, thickly blanketing tortillas and melted Cheddar. We’ve added some extra creaminess and body with locally popular pinto beans, to cut down on the classic’s load of saturated fat. Top with shredded lettuce and minced onion.
