Some days, you just want a small amount of red chile sauce. This homestyle New Mexican recipe is just enough for a big bowl with beans or over eggs. I prefer red chile made from pods rather than spices, it just tastes sweeter. If possible, use a blender to puree the red chile rather than a food processor.
