    Roosie's Note:

    Easy, and healthy if you use less cheese than I did. EXTREMELY tasty! These microwave very well and any leftover sauce can be refrigerated and used later. Sauce and enchiladas can also have jalapeños, chili powder to spice them up or other veggies. I used a couple baby carrots, for color and a little flavor- YUM!

    Enchilada Sauce

    Enchiladas

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sauté olive oil, spices and flour in a pot (it must hold about 4 cups of enchilada sauce) until browning and fragrant.
    2. 2
      Break up clumps as best you can.
    3. 3
      Add vegetable broth, tomato sauce and salsa and simmer, stirring frequently until thickened.

      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    5. 5
      Sauté veggies with olive oil or butter until onions are transparent.
    6. 6
      Heat tortillas in the microwave until soft (about 35 seconds) or put some butter in a skillet and toast that way.
    7. 7
      The tortillas just need to be soft enough to fold into enchiladas without breaking.
    8. 8
      Fill tortillas with veggie mixture.
    9. 9
      Add desired amount of cheese.
    10. 10

      Thanks for a great recipe. I also used only 2 cups of broth and added additional veggies and black beans like another poster suggested. Love that i usually have everything on hand to make the sauce so enchiladas are now an easy staple in our home.

      These were good. I added some black beans and zucchini and mushrooms. I use only 2 cups of broth as others suggested. Thanks.

      Loved this! Made the sauce as directed, except I only had 3 cups of chicken broth. A lot of seasonings go into the sauce, but it comes out flavorful - not spicy hot. I like the suggestion to only use 2 cups of broth and will do that next time. I branched out on the fillings and used diced red onion, broccoli chopped very small, and chopped mushrooms. When they had cooked down, I added half a block of neufchatel cheese and melted that in. (You could use cream cheese or lowfat cream cheese, but I like neufchatel for the fat/flavor trade off.) I rolled the filling in low carb tortillas poured the sauce over, sprinkling with some grated cheddar. Loved it! The cream cheese gives the filling a nice creamy/gooey texture without using a lot of it. We didn't miss the meat at all. I did have extra sauce, and I mixed that in with more salsa and added that to cooked brown rice with canned black beans to make an easy version of black beans and rice.
