    I served this with the Christmas Chilaquiles - it made the meal taste amazing. I used a chili powder labeled as Mexican Chili Powder and used only 1/3 C - I would eat this again for sure

    Very easy sauce to make and worked very well for the pork enchiladas. I reduced the honey by half - it was unobtrusive and the sauce was complex but not sweet. I would make this again! Note: I think it's named "New Mexican Red Chile sauce" because it's made from *New Mexican Red Chiles*, not because it's necessarily authentic New Mexican food. Judge it on taste, not authenticity!

    Nice almost smoky flavor, with just the right amount of heat. My sauce had a little bit of a chalky taste, probably because of the 1/2 cup of New Mexico chile powder called for - I'd consider blending all the ingredients in the blender after cooking, next time, to eliminate the chalkiness.
