Easy Cheesy Red Enchilada Sauce

READY IN: 42mins
Recipe by Debs Recipes

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.

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!!
