This is a great sauce for enchiladas, huevos rancheros, and tacos.

I made this tonight for dinner. Crisped up some corn tortillas, fried some eggs, layered it. Topped with cheese. A side of pinto beans. Voila! Better than our favorite mexican restaurant's huevos rancheros. The only change I made was added two good sized jalapenos instead of one, but that is obviously a personal preference. .
