    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I strongly suggest to make this sauce a day ahead and refrigerate as the flavors will blend together even more, and I advise that you double amounts if you are using it for enchiladas, what you do not use may be frozen for later use, this sauce freezes very well, in fact I most always make more to have handy in my freezer --- this makes a fantastic sauce for tacos or enchiladas it is the only one that I use I never purchase bottled this is much better --- the sour cream is only optional add in for a creamy-style sauce :)

      Mine was salty, but that was probably my own fault. I added Jalapino and Anahiem peppers and will probably lessen cumin next time, but only because I'm not a big fan of cumin.

      Another winner from Kittencal! Even the picky 9-year-old loved it. (She did say it was spicy though I only added 1/4 tsp red pepper. I'll just leave it out next time.) I'm glad I took your advice and made a double batch. This is a keeper.

      I used the whole teaspoon of chile flakes and it was way too spicy. I added a whole 6 oz. can of tomato paste and a 14 oz. can of refried beans to cut the heat. Then I used it with leftover pork, corn tortillas, chopped onion, and cheese for some delicious enchiladas.
