Enchiladas With Chile Ancho Sauce @ Casa Garcia
The best sauce they make at Casa Garcia is their chili ancho sauce, a thick, ruddy-brown concoction with a complex flavor. It’s at its best with any kind of enchilada, but particularly simple cheese and onion enchiladas. They’re also terrific on the restaurants hand-made tamales. An ancho chili is a dried poblano pepper, a modestly hot variety. The drying process gives it the distinctive cordovan color and flavor.
