Chile Corado Sauce from Chef Aaron Sanchez
Aaron Sanchez's Chile Colorado Sauce
By Latina Staff | 10/03/2012 - 10:40

In the north of Mexico, where I’m from, chunks of luscious braised pork wade in ruddy sauce. If the pot was big enough, I swear I’d jump right in. This is my soul food. This is carne con chile Colorado

And no, it’s not from the state of Colorado. Colorado basically means “red” in Spanish, as in the color imparted by chiles like guajilos and anchos.  When I was ittle and my mom would make this dish, the house would have this unbelievable aroma of tomatoes and tomatillos, garlic and onions, all charring on a comal. This more than anything else, my mom always says, is the smell of a Mexican kitchen.

You see this basic combination of ingredients in various forms throughout the country, from that mind-blowing pork to the marinade for thin slices of beef browning over charcoal in the street markets of Oaxaca, to big pots of pozole, the hominy stew that’s the world’s greatest hangover cure. But my Chile Colorado Sauce distills the flavors into a puree that you can turn into multiple dishes. It’s a beautiful thing: a little tangy from the tomatillos, a touch sweet from the tomatoes and onions, and packed with flavor (not heat) from the ancho and guajillo chiles. And making it fills your kitchen with the same awesome smells I was blessed to experience growing up.
