We were curious about making our own enchilada sauce so we gave this a try. The chilies, like several reviewers said, were a royal pain even though I tried to 'steam' off the skins we still had to scrape the pulp. I also went to 3 different markets looking for the chilies- we're in an urban area with ethnic groceries and large "international" sections and good cross-section of produce in the regular markets but sadly no Latin grocery near us. I wound up getting New Mexico peppers instead of ancho/pasillas. Hubby bought a jar of sauce in case the recipe didn't work out; we followed the recipe, it smelled good and tasted OK but was lacking something. Added about 1/4 cup of the jar stuff and it immediately came together. We went on to make delicious enchiladas with my homemade refried beans. Will definitely try this again when we find the right peppers.
