Enchilada Sauce Best Ever!

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Goob's_Mom

The basic recipe is from a mexican restaurant but I have changed it over the years to make the "ultimate Enchilada Sauce". We use the same sauce on our poutine. Our friends beg me for the recipe! We have also used it as a dip for bbq chicken.
