Nice! I've never made them before but was thinking about it for Christmas. I have a ton of chopped brisket and some pulled pork.

2 or 3 cascabel pepper(i used 6)
some left over juice & pork or pork jelly(juices, spices & fat chilled-think pork base)
tomato(can of mild rotels- or diced maters)
dash of cilantro

dice all the veggies except the chile's
sweat the veggies then simmer all of it down in the pork jelly(jelly-pork juices w/ fat on top)
puree the chili's when soft
continue simmering until the kitchen smells good then add a tbsp of tomato paste to thicken- maybe add a dash of corn starch if needed.

salt & pepper to taste..(all measurements are to nose or taste)
note- to me tomatoes cancel out cumin(comino) so i add a lot of comino until i can smell it a room away-you still won't taste it the same-much weaker

yup but i added some thyme in too & just chopped the chile's after simmering(removed the stems) added a shot of beer & some lime juice...
did a tbsp of corn starch for thickening instead of a reduction
damn tasty

sprinkled cilantro on top for color.

more step by step when the home-done refrieds are finished.
