Personal Notes:
- Fernandez Chile is locally sold in the SLV. I buy the lightest color of chile because I prefer flavor to heat. This 1 1/2 oz pkg of chili is to be added to water for a sauce. But, I use it the way I have written. This produces a very mild sauce. You may add more chili powder (redder) if you like. Experiment and find the right amount you prefer.
I have found it is easier to melt lard and flour together, brown it and store it in a container in the frig and then you have a large batch ready to use whenever you need it.
