Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
As a native New Mexican, it is law to have a second blender used solely to blend and make the red chile sauce every year (with roasted chiles, water and spices, no tomatoes). The chiles dye the blender dark red-black. I found that Old El Paso enchilada sauce tastes great and use that instead of slaving away every year. I felt guilty but every one raves about my enchiladas. One day I was driving down a county road in Gadsden County, the county that produces all the chile in NM (chile capital of the world) and drove by a huge factory labeled "Old El Paso" on the side. No wonder it taste great. Made with fresh Hatch chiles in the high dry desert climate of New Mexico. My review will probably be dropped...but anything that saves time and energy.

Date Roll Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
My aunt made something similar. We called it Aunt Irene's date roll (very creative, LOL) My mom made it when we were kids. Because of pitted and chopped dates, chopped pecans, and no stick pots, I am exploring some of my ancestor's recipes (hated cracking pecans as a kid!!) Anyway, I live at 7,000 ft and everything is coming out very sugary. I am trying to follow the Univ. of Las Cruces, Hi Alt. candy guidelines (see their website): minus 2 degrees for every 1,000 which for me is minus 14 and hope that solves the problem. Would love to hear from others who have tried candy at hi alt.
