Chile Colorado Sauce (Basic Red Chili Sauce)
5

I've always made my chile Colorado from scratch. Using my mom's recipe. I soak the ancho chiles in hot water, then blend them and run it through a colander. Pretty basic ingredients; dried ancho chiles, garlic, onion, oregano, but I have no idea what the phosphorus and potassium content is on the chiles. I put it in the food analyzer and it doesn't recognize it. does anyone know? Dietitian comment: 1 dried Ancho Chili Pepper (17 g) has 48 calories, 2 g protein, 9 g carbohydrate, 1.4 g fat, 3.7 g fiber, 7 mg sodium, 410 mg potassium, 34 mg phosphorus, 10 mg calcium. As you can see the potassium is high so consider how many chili peppers used and how many portions per batch.

Please could you tell me what item makes this recipe high potassium. Dietitian comment: Most of the potassium is from the chili powder.

I made this sauce and used it for chicken enchiladas. I covered the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan with some of the sauce. Then I made the enchiladas by putting a little sauce, cooked chicken, raw onion, pepper and a little sour cream inside a flour tortilla. I covered the top of the enchiladas with the rest of the sauce. For family members (everyone but one) not on dialysis I put cheese inside the enchillada and on top. Baked the enchiladas covered in foil at 350 for 30 minutes. We really enjoyed them. The only thing lacking was salt. We will definitely use this recipe again.
