I just noticed you are in Ireland.

There is no telling what the chef did!!!

You are not in an Authentic Mexican food territory.Go bug the chef if you want to find out.

Do you really drink Coors Light in Ireland?

They're tricksy little critters I'll tell ye 4me. Especially when it comes to the old gold.

Thanks for the welcome guys. No problems about the sauce Babe, the thing I love about the cooking is finding out what works and how it does. So I'll have lots of fun finding out for myself.

The sauce may have a little dark chocolate added, which may account for the color.

Very interesting, Bolas...I think you might have something there. You must be quite the culinary expert.

welcome asiyreh.


what county?

my dad is from leitrim, grands from cavan and mayo.

as far as a "burnt" orange sauce goes, carrots are often the culprit. i've made some really pukey, diahrrea brown albeit delicious sauces using carrots, onion, garlic, vinegar, and all types of hot peppers. the idea is that carrots add sweetness.

my butt they do; not if you're using reddish or orange peppers with any kind of cajones. it just muddles the mix. adding green peppers, no matter how hot, just turns it brown.

since you are more than an a$$ and cart ride away from true tex-mex (which has it's own identity problem, lol), i agree to ask the chef. it sounds like a particular recipe.

and lol @ drinking coor's light. what is it with young irishmen/women with that stuff? i've noticed at so many bars and house parties that it's THE beer of choice with irish ex-pats.

You could always fly me, my family, and my dad over so we can taste it. We could break it down for you. Ok, so my dad could break it down for you, but my ticket is my fee for his services. Then of course, I couldn't leave DH and DD behind. So, if you have a few extra thousands laying around, we'll be over in no time! You don't even have to buy a separate ticket for my daughter, she's under 2.

Welcome to DC!

First and foremost, welcome to the forums. I don't think I could be of much help in this thread, but the following comment made me think of a joke I heard just the other day.

After a Beer Festival in London, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer.


Corona's president sits down and says, "Seņor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender takes a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.

Then Budweiser's president says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one.

Coors' president says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, the only one made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it.
The guy from Guinness sits down and says, "Give me a Coke." The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, "Why aren't you drinking a Guinness?" and the Guinness president replies, "Well, if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither will I."

Cheers!
