I loved this recipe. I will use this every time. This is definately better than any store bought brand. I omitted the fresh garlic and used garlic powder instead and I subbed beef stock for chicken broth. If you are looking for a recipe for enchilada sauce...This IS the one! Thanks for the recipe.

THE FLAVORS ARE FANTASTIC!! I was afraid the chili would be too much, it was excellent. I added some chipotle powder for some heat
