Phenomenal! I cook for a retirement community and I didn't like the sauce we were making. I went on a search for the best enchilada sauce and found this one! I made it for the residents and everyone loved it. Thank you for sharing this! And it does taste like Amy's sauce. Also, I added onion powder to mine.

I just love,love, love this sauce. When we were in Europe I missed enchilada sauce so much that I hunted forever a sauce recipe that would fulfill my expectations. This is it! Now that we are back in the US canned sauce abounds. But not for us. I use this for enchiladas and is my secret weapon in my chili. I have used different types of chili powder, my personal favorite being a "dark chili powder". You can't go wrong with this one. And of note, if you fell like your hanging out at the stove for ever waiting for this to thicken (I did at first) simply turn up the heat and keep whisking slowly. I make this in my big open high sided non-stick pan. Works great! Thanks for sharing.

Wht can I say that hasn't been said? This is wonderful. I only had a 15oz can of tomato sauce so had to double all the seasonings. The leftover was used the following evening to saute chicken breasts. They were wonderful too. Thanks

We made homemade enchiladas for dinner last night and used your sauce recipe. I followed the recipe perfectly, right down to the Cocoa. I was impressed ! I have never made my own homemade enchiladas before but I have had a lot of them, and these were the best I have ever eaten. We will make these again and again. Thanks for a wonderful recipe !

This is way better than any canned sauce I've ever had, this is my default Enchilada sauce recipe and it always turns out great.

We love this Enchilada sauce and I have made it a few times now with great success, which is exciting for me because I am a new cook and have been experimenting with Mexican cooking over the winter since we love it so much. This sauce will be made often!

AMAZING!! Loved it and it made more than enough for my recipe! Froze the rest and am looking forward to trying it after the flavors have melded a bit more... but as it is, it is AWESOME straight from the pan!! Thanks so much!

I ended up really liking this but i have to admit that i changed it quite a bit. I guess my tastes in enchilada sauce are pretty americanized. I added a full two cans of diced tomatoes to this and it was delish.
