I tried this recipe when I was out of the red chile powder I needed to make my favorite red chile sauce for rellenos. I've been making homemade Chile Rellenos for over 30 years now and make the batter for the rellenos pretty much the same way as this recipe. It takes a bit of work but the results are delicious and not the least bit heavy or greasy . I tried the sauce recipe here but in my opinion, it was too tomato-y and did not work well with the relleno. Out here in New Mexico we (strongly) favor a sauce made from pureed red chiles, using no tomatoes, cinnamon, etc. for our rellenos. So, for the battered chiles, I give this 5 stars. I give the sauce 2 stars.
