    Janet Musgrove's Note:

    This recipe is from Cook 'Em Horns published by the University of Texas Ex-Students' Association. It is the only enchilada sauce recipe I use, period. Homemade is always best. I have used a blender, but I don't blend all the tomatoes. I have also used a potato masher for the tomatoes for a thicker sauce. Cooking and prep time to not include preparing the enchiladas. Serve on beef, chicken, vegetarian...just about any kind of enchilada.

      I won't be using store-bought sauce from now on! This is easy to make. And tastes great! I used it in Chili Stuffed Enchiladas. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
