    You want "sauces" as opposed to "salsas"? You really just need a blender and a few simple ingredients. The restaurants probably just don't want to tell you they buy canned! Red sauces are usually a mixture of dried red peppers (rehydrated in warm water) with chicken broth and sometimes a little masa. The green ones are usually tomatillos and jalapenos boiled then blended or processed. I can get you more precise recipes when I get home.

    I have never seen the term "button of garlic". I assume you mean clove. Just curious.

    That was an exact wording of the recipe as written in the cookbook. I've not heard that term before either. I have made the sauces, though.
    More subtle than today's vivid sauces, but tasty.
