Recipe Ingredients for Ancho Chile Bean Sauce

1 cup cooked pinto beans
28 g Chile Ancho
2 garlic cloves, with skin
3 roma tomatoes
8 oz mushrooms (optional)

Recipe Directions for Ancho Chile Bean Sauce

  1. Place chiles in medium sauce pan and cover with water, heat to a boil, remove from heat and set aside until soft about 20 minutes. After chiles become soft, removes stem and seeds.
