  1. The inspiration for this dish came from one of my favorite Mexican cookbooks, Dona Tomas by Thomas Schnetz and Dona SavitskyI love the addition of the pineapple in this sauce, as it amplifies the fruity characteristic of the guajillo chiles.

  2. This sauce is spicy but not too fiery for most people. If you fear the heat, you can substitute milder ancho chiles, but the sauce will of course have a different flavor and color.
