Enchilada Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kaarin

Use this as enchilada or taco sauce. Add more chili powder if you like; we like it more mild. I like to make up a big batch of this and put some in the freezer when I have an abundance of tomatoes. Adapted from the "More With Less" cookbook.

This is the recipe to use if you need a quick and easy home-made sauce. Nice and straightforward to make and very tasty too. I only wanted a small amount of sauce so halved the ingredients and used one 14 oz can of chopped tomatoes, which worked a treat. Unfortunately I have used up all my home grown tomatoes, but I'll certainly keep this recipe for processing next year's crop.
