    Sheri-BDB's Note:

    This is a red sauce that I found on some website and slightly made adjustments. It's an excellent sauce for tamales, enchiladas and Mexican chicken casseroles.

      I was looking for a sauce for tamales and came upon this one. Our family LOVED it. I did add more jalapeno and cayenne, but we like spicy food. It's such a versatile sauce; I too will be making this again -- doubling it -- so I can have it handy in the freezer. It's so good and fresh-tasting. Thanks, Sheri.
