Do you have a recipe for the type of chip sauce commonly found in a Mexican restaurant?

I am not asking for a salsa recipe. The sauce I'm requesting is much smoother and has a pureed texture to it. There are no vegetables visible. The only thing I recognize in it is possibly crushed red pepper. I could probably mix up a batch by experimentation if I knew what the base was. Is it canned tomatoes that have been pureed? Thanks for your help.
The cheapest, greasy-spoon recipe I know for salsa is 50/50 canned ketchup wth canned tomato sauce. Add enough tabasco to enliven the results. Note that salsa must be boiled for 45 seconds if it is recycled from the serving area.

Make salsa and puree' it before heating. Or just buy a jar of salsa. Every restaurant has different recipes for the salsa they serve. I just love fresh pico de gallo. I like my chuncks.
