I add a bit of cayenne pepper for a bit more kick, But awesome recipe.

This is the best! Many enchilada sauces I have tried are too bitter. This is flavorful and smooth. Thanks for a great recipe!

Found this recipe kind of by mistake. What a wonderful mistake! The cocoa intrigued me. I had to make it. I was planning enchiladas for a future night, but I couldn't wait. I love that all the ingredients are those that you have on hand. I made them tonight and we loved this sauce. I will never buy a can again. I made it a little spicy, but we like it that way. Very much like what I had in Mexico. I didn't have any trouble with it thickening. And yes...it freezes very well. Enjoy!!!

This was good but didn't knock my socks off. I'll probably use this as my go-to recipe from now on though since it's so simple and inexpensive to prepare (have everything on hand already). Even though a can of enchilada sauce is about $1.50 this is still cheaper! And it yields a lot. I only used half for about 12 enchiladas.

This was AWESOME! Mine thickened nicely but I turned up the heat on it to aid the thickening. Once I added the tomato sauce I shut heat off and it was perfectly thick after a few minutes. I added this sauce to an Enchilada Soup and it was OUTSTANDING!

Delicious and easy to whip up! I love it because I always have these ingredients in the pantry. Like others, I'd suggest an additional Tbl of flour to thicken it a bit quicker. I'm planning on throwing in a pinch of cinnamon next time just for kicks. Thanks for this great recipe!

Really good! I loved the addition of the chocolate. I had the same challenge as other pp's with the sauce taking a very long time to thicken up. I was whisking for about 45 minutes. Next time I make this (& I WILL make this again) I will add another tbls of flour to thicken it up a bit quicker. Very good mix of flavors.

Delicious, quick, and low cal/fat sauce! I used it in Easy Enchiladas (Beef or Chicken), and it was great. However, this recipe makes a LOT of enchilada sauce -- probably 3 times the amount I used in my enchiladas! I'm hoping it freezes well, though it wouldn't be a huge deal if I have to remake it next time.
