My go-to sauce for enchiladas! No yucky preservative liked the canned ones and super quick and easy to make.

Excellent. Loved that it didn't use oil. I was nervous about the cocoa powder, but it was so good. I changed up the spices for my preferences. Glad i made lots extra.

I just made this. I used fresh minced garlic probably more salt than called for, and T of ancho chili powder rather than 3 of generic chili. OMG. You just gotta love those rare occasions when the very simplest is also the very best. This is, hands down, the best enchilada sauce I have ever made. Finally, the secret recipe! Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting it.

This is definitely worth the extra effort to make, as it's so much better than store-bought enchilada sauce. Thanks for sharing- this made my enchiladas taste great :)

Yummy! I made this to put on chili stuffed enchiladas. This is by far the best recipe for enchilada sauce I've found. I made it as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing.

I made this just as it is written. By far the best enchilada sauce I've ever had! I'm thinking of making up a huge batch and canning it.
