Maria’s 100-Percent Agave House Margarita

  • A saucer of kosher salt (about 1/4 -inch deep)
  • 1  3/4 ounces Jose Cuervo Traditional 100-percent agave tequila
  • 1 ounce Bols triple sec

Run lemon wedge around the rim of hurricane-style margarita glass. Dip rim of glass into saucer of salt, rotating rim in salt until desired amount collects on glass.

Measure tequila, triple sec and lemon juice into 16-ounce cocktail shaker glass full of ice. Place stainless steel cocktail lid over shaker glass, tapping top to create seal.

Red Chile Sauce with Meat

Makes about 6 cups

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef, preferably coarse ground
  • 3/4 cup dried ground red chile, preferably Chimayò, other New Mexican red or ancho
  • 1 tablespoon minced white onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water

Brown beef over medium heat in high-sided skillet until pink color is gone. Add chile, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and black pepper; stir to combine. Pour water slowly into skillet while continuing to stir. Break up any lumps of chile. Continue stirring sauce and when it is warmed through, add cornstarch.

Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat to simmer. Cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Completed sauce should coat a spoon thickly and not taste of raw cornstarch. If it becomes too thick, add more water. Serve sauce warm with enchildas, burritos or other dishes. Red chile sauce freezes well. Add extra water when reheating.
