chicken with red chile sauce and sausage (pollo con salsa rojo y chorizo)

chicken with red chile sauce and sausage (pollo con salsa rojo y chorizo)
  • 3 dried ancho chiles
  • 6 dried guajillo chiles
  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup corn oil, divided
  • salt to taste
  • 6 skinless chicken legs, separated into thighs and drumsticks,
  • 1/2 pound chorizo sausage, casings removed and crumbled



  1. Remove the stems, seeds, and membranes from the ancho chiles and guajillo chiles, then soak in hot water until softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Remove the stems from the tomatoes, then cut a shallow X on the bottom. Drop the tomatoes into the water, and cook uncovered until the skin begins to peel off, about 30 seconds. Drain in a colander, then immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Once the tomatoes are cold, peel the skin off. Drain chiles and transfer to a blender along with the peeled tomatoes, garlic, onion, and chicken broth. Blend until smooth.
  3. Heat 1/2 of the corn oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the chile mixture, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt. Heat the remaining corn oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken legs in 2 batches and remove from the skillet.
  4. Stir the chorizo into the same skillet; cook and stir until the chorizo is evenly browned. Drain any excess oil and stir in 1 cup of the chile sauce. Return the chicken to the skillet, along with the remaining chile sauce. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking until chicken is tender, 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
