Step 1

Soak the anchos in hot water for 30 minutes or until soft. In a large heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes, or until they begin to wilt. Add the ketchup and anchos and saute for 4 minutes. Add all of the remaining ingredients and simmer gently 30-40 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool. Place in a blender or food processor and puree. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to three weeks. Reheat before serving.
