Very easy to throw together and just as good as the stuff you buy in a can.

This was so easy and with common ingredients. I thought this was as good as the canned stuff and I like the fact that I know all the ingredients in it--no MSG or other chemicals. I used butter instead of oil and crushed tomatoes instead of pureed. Other than that I made as written. The recipe I was using it for called for 1 can enchilada sauce; I had enough for that recipe and enough to freeze for later. I would estimate that this makes the equivalent of 2 cans.

My family enjoyed this sauce very much. It was much better than the canned stuff. Great for dipping chicken in!!
