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.

FANTASTIC!!! I am going to make more to keep in my freezer, I used three jalapeno peppers and increased the garlic way up and adjusted the spice amounts just slightly, thanks for a wonderful recipe hon!...Kitten

This was way too sweet. I was looking for a recipe like they have in resturants...a brownish red sauce that the put over enchiladas and burritos.
