This sauce is based off of another here on the site. I added a bit of my own twist to it and it is delicious. I hope you will try it. I use this everytime I make my homemade shredded beef enchiladas. Enjoy.
- 3 tablespoons chili powder
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon baking cocoa
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 3 cups water
- 1 (8 ounce) tomato sauce
- Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Add about a half cup of the water to make a paste. Pour paste into a saucepan. Turn your heat on high and wait for paste to bubble. Slowly pour the remaining water in while stirring. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer about ten minutes stirring occasionally. Add tomato sauce and mix. Simmer 5 minutes and remove from heat. Use for enchiladas, burritos, etc.
Thanks, this turned out great. Was in a pinch (forgot to buy) and tried this, increased the garlic to 1 tbs crushed, but left out the salt. For my family's need this fit the bill perfectly. I always wondered what gave it that special taste, but would never have guessed that cocoa powder was the culprit. Again, Thanks for sharing.
This recipe is very good, very easy and no fat. I also agree that it is very cheep. I too added fresh garlic, but added a little more salt. I am already trying to think of other things I can use it in.
This is the best enchilada sauce recipe I've ever tried. Easy to make without too many ingredients. Yummy!
