I use this for our favorite enchiladas. I've been told that it makes them taste like Chili's.

AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! What else can you say???? This sauce was amazing. We are from the SW and just couldn't duplicate the awesome flavor of homemade enchilada sauce until now. I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan about 20 single rolled enchiladas and had a bit left over. This sauce is perfect, you will not be disappointed!! Thanks for sharing SweetsLady!
