I came across a recipe recently that called for dry enchilada mix but I couldn't find it at the store. I searched around a bit and eventually came up with this recipe to use in its place. One recipe is the equivalent of a 1.5 oz package.

I haven't tried this yet, however, I would assume you can use it as you would a 1.5 oz packet of seasoning. To make this into a sauce, you should be able to add 1 1/2 cups water and 8 oz tomato sauce. Bring to boil in small saucepan and boil 1 minute, then simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Use as directed in your enchilada recipe.

Made for PAC Spring 2009. Other than the fact that I wasn't sure how to use this (I used about 1 cup of water and an 8 oz can of tomato sauce), this was awesome. Even DH commented on how good it was ~ he usually doesn't comment much unless he really likes something. I do have my own enchilada sauce recipe posted, but it is time consuming. Will definitely make then when I'm time crunched. Would be a great recipe to make up in advance so you have it on hand. Thanks for posting this Flower!
