I used dried New Mexico Chili Pods and the sauce turned out like a rich mole. This is a very good recipe.

Loved this recipe! Made it exactly as written and my Mexican husband says it took him back to his childhood (but better than Mom use to make!) I've made it twice now. It will a regular meal in this house for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
