For those who prefer more spicy, add a can of green chilies or even some jalapenos. For those who prefer is milder, add a chopped tomato, or serve ff yogurt or sourcream to “soften” it a bit.

Chili sauce:

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • dried chilies

Directions:

Read chili package for “mild” or “hot” to your taste, soak in boiling water for at least 1 hour, over night is okay. Blend the chilies in blender until smooth, adding the soaking liquid to the right consistency. If you want it really smooth, you will need to strain it as some of the skin remains in pieces. (I don’t bother)
