OK, here's the recipe. The first step is to make some carne seca. The recipe, more or less is here.

You save 2 cups of that water from the boil. You can use regular water, but this is more flavorful.
Other ingredients are
2 tbsp oil
1 minced onion
a few minced garlic cloves
2 tbsp flour
6 tbsp ground NM chile powder
2 cups tomato juice
1 tsp Mexican oregano
1+ teaspoon of salt
May add a bit of tomato paste or a beef bouillon cube if necessary

saute onion and garlic in oil until soft. add flour and mix, then chile, then "water," slowly. Add rest of ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes or so. The sauce by itself generally doesn't taste good to most people. It is when it is added to the other food that it shines. This is part of the dilemma as I've had sauce that I thought was delicious, but when added to the food, it was lame, and some of the worst-tasting sauce on the spoon tasted the best with the food.
