New Mexican Red Chile Sauce

New Mexican chile powder gives this sauce an authentic spicy, slightly bitter flavor. You can get a similar flavor by substituting 7 tablespoons top-quality sweet paprika mixed with 1 tablespoon ground red pepper. Don't use commercial chili powder in its place, though. Serve with meat, vegetables, or as enchilada sauce.

This recipe goes with Huevos Rancheros, Santa Fe Red Chile Enchiladas, Christmas Chilaquiles
