Fill the red chile container with water and add to pot. (for a thicker chile add only 3/4 of the container)
Stir again and bring to a soft boil
Lower heat to low and allow to simmer, at least 20 minutes.
Enjoy the spicy, savory flavor!
You can also make this recipe with powdered NM chile. Use the same instructions as above but use a ratio of 2 tbsp chile powder for each tbsp of arrowroot flour.
For example, for the quantity above:
I would add 2 tbsp arrowroot flour to the ground beef mixture and brown as recipe calls for. Then incorporate 4 tbsp chile powder. Once that is combined, add 1 1/2 - 2 cups of water and stir. Then continue to follow boil/simmer instructions above.
