Thanks for the comment and I'm glad you enjoyed. The other option is dried ancho chilies and then soak the in water for a while to reconstitute them. Then you can cut out the seeds and use a food processor to make a paste.

Made this today and it was excellent. I could not find ancho chili paste, so I used ancho chili powder and mixed it with some tomato paste. We let it cook for about 5 hours total and served it with all the fixings- shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and chopped red onions. Also made homemade cornbread and a green salad to go with it. We will definitely make this again!
