My wife Nancy, son Quinn and I got the chance to eat at Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill
It was an incredible foodie experience. His creativity and attention to
detail was obvious in everything, from the drinks we had before dinner
was Quinn's first real gourmet experience and it made me incredibly
happy to see that he had reached an age where he could appreciate what
a special experience it was.
when a friend and co-worker left a bag of dried guajillo peppers and a
copy of Bayless' Essential Simmered Guajillo Sauce on my desk, I knew
it wouldn't be long before I made it. Now that I've done so, I know I
will again. I adapted it slightly for our own tastes, but this is
essentially Bayless' recipe. The enchiladas I put together to showcase
the sauce were pretty basic, but the sauce was "softly spicy," Quinn
said. The beautiful brick color reflected a bit of an earthy taste as
well. As Quinn said, "You can taste Rick Bayless in this."
One of these enchiladas and sauce is 398 calories with 6 grams of fat and 10 of fiber.
