    Today we made Chili Colorado...but first had a nice drink and watching the ball game.

    Then we made the sauce. It was 8 California chiles toasted and removed the seeds and soaked in water for about 30 min or so. Goes in the blender with 1/2 onion, 4 garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1tbs of cummin. 4 tbs of oil and salt and pepper to taste.

    Used chuck steak and cut up to smaller pieces..

    Of to the CI to get cooked...

    Then added the sauce.

    Bring to a boil then its ready.

    Plated with rice and queso fresco.

    Thanks for looking ,

    Not spicy at all.
    The Chillis are very mild. If jalapeños would of been used then yes it would be very spicy..
  8. Thanks,

    That was my guess but I thought I should ask. What would you think about half chilis and half  jalapeños?

    Thanks Again,

    No. I've just done a few Mexican vacations and can say enough to get my face slapped.

    It would be spicy but not as red. Traditionally chile rojo is not spicy it's the chile verde you have to worry about. I made a post on another site but according to rules I can't link it. If your interested I can't post here.

    That is great.. just great. Now that will be stuck in my head every day until I get my fix..

    I will try your sauce and meat, what about the rice? I never mastered a simple mexican rice, dirty rice or black bean rice for a meal like this..

    I love that you grilled the tortillas, my favorite!
