Here's an incredibly easy and really good homemade sauce. The recipe, found several years ago on a package of locally-made tortillas, makes enough to replace one 15-ounce can of mild red enchilada sauce.
- Whisk together all ingredients except parmesan cheese in a saucepan; bring to boil, reduce heat and gently simmer 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and whisk in parmesan cheese.
Just what I was looking for! I bought a can of sauce for recipe that was a horrid flavor, and poured it out... then proceeded to make this one in it's place. Perfect for "enchilada-style" burritos. I'll add just a bit more chili powder next time. As is, is just a little mild for my tastes. Glad to find a recipe that uses things always in my cupboard!!
Great flavor in this sauce! Perfect for the enchiladas I was making! We will use this from now on, because it tastes so much better than the stuff in the can!
Lovely, comforting sauce. We paired it to your enchiladas and were very satisfied. Thanks for a great recipe. Will be making again!! I got about 11/2 cups in the end though...
