Hatch Chile pods
4 to 5 cloves garlic
Take several pods, 4 to 5 to start depending on your taste preferences, and place them in a pot of boiling water for about 20 minutes. You want them not quite fully soft but not firm either. Empty the pot of water and add cool water to cool the pods down. Now put on your kitchen gloves and take off the stems & get the seeds out. Now put your pods in a blender with 4 to 5 cloves of garlic. Fill the blender about half way up with fresh water. The amount of water is up to you depending on how thick or thin you want your Red Chile sauce to be. Blend until you see the color change from red to slightly orange. Add a pinch of salt or so as the amount is up to you depending on your taste level. You can freeze excess for future use.
