Basic Red Gravy

This is the red "gravy" that you will use to top your enchiladas, dress your burritos, and mix into your ground beef for your tacos.
You will need;
  • 1-10oz. bag of dried Guajillo Peppers (red) seeds and stems separated.
  • 1-large Onion, peeled & quartered
  • 6-cloves of Garlic, peeled
  • 1-tbls black pepper
  • 1.5-tbls salt
  • .5 cup vinegar
  • 2-tbls of knorr suiza or 2 chicken boulion cubes (3 cups of chicken broth can be used also in place of these)
  • 2-Bay leaves
Combine the peppers, onion, garlic, & bay leaf in a 5qt pot and fill with enough water to float the ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the salt, pepper, vinegar, and knorr suiza, stir well and continue to boil until the Guajillo peppers are soft. With a spoon, put everything in the blender and liquify. Pour through a metal strainer into a bowl to remove all the pulp, mix in water from the pot to bring to a smooth, semi thick consistency.
