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!
I will never buy canned enchilada sauce again. This was delicious and perfectly seasoned. I used fresh crushed garlic + salt for the garlic salt. This was so easy to make. I did the math on this: 1 (10 oz) can of enchi sauce at the store is $1.29. With this recipe you get 4 cups (32 oz) of sauce for just pennies more than the 30 cents you spend on the can of generic tomato sauce. I used this sauce for your delicious Shredded Beef Enchiladas Thanx for posting!
