Homemade Enchilada sauce is so much better than what you can buy in a can and it's easy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preaheat oven to 400.
  2. For the sauce: In a medium sauce pan over medium high mix in flour and oil under bubbly. Add in spices and stir well. Slowly add in chicken broth. When the mixture is thick add the tomato sauce. Turn the heat to low and let the sauce simmer covered, for 15 minutes, stir once or twice.
  3. For the filling: In a large skillet brown the beef and drain any grease. Season with salt and pepper (I use a dash of garlic powder also.) Take the tortillas and fill each one with the beef and place in a baking dish (I use a 9x13.) Bake the filled tortillas uncovered for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes remove the dish from the oven and top with the enchilada sauce and cheddar cheese. Bake for an additional 15 covered. Serve and enjoy!

Very very good! I used Corn torillas dipped in hot oil, then filled and rolled. I will also do as recipe states next time with flour tortillas as that sounds very good. What is unique about this recipe unlike others is baking them for 15 min before topping with sauce. Doing it this way makes them a bit crispy before baking with the sauce on top. Otherwise, you end up with enchiladas that are mushy. The combination of sauces and flavors are PERFECT. Many thanks for posting. Definitely deservable of a 5 star rating! Not only are the ingredients important but equally the technique used to cook the dish!
