This was great! Fresh-tasting, flavorful, with a little bit of spice. I used a hotter chili powder but next time I may add a little bit of extra cayanne. I mixed this into my enchilada filling (shredded chicken, beans, and tiny chopped zucchini) and it was delicious!
I live in a small town and they don't sell much in the way of mexican food. This recipe is a huge hit with my family. I slowly added the chicken broth, like you would when making a roux. Then I added the tomato sauce and let it bubble for 20 minutes. I used a little less chicken stock because it would have been a little too runny for my liking.
This was a very good basic sauce. It is quite mild, so I added a generous pinch of cayenne to it. The sauce was initially quite thin, so I simmered it for about 45 minutes. The next time I make this recipe I will use a little less chicken broth. It was a big hit with my family.
This was ok. It didnt have as much flavor as I had hoped it would. It thickened up just fine for me, but I did use a little less of the liquid. If I had used all of it, I think it would have been too runny. Thanks for the recipe!
For some reason, mine didn't thicken and I resorted to adding a little cornstarch/water. That could be because my stove doesn't have high heat??? It is more flavorful than than the canned version.
Great sauce. Used in Chicken Enchilada Chicken Enchiladas and it was delicious. Easy to make as well. Added half a jalepeno and it still was acceptable to my kids.
Very easy and delicious! I used beef bullion instead of chicken broth, and used the sauce over beef and bean burritos. Very tasty!
This sauce was tasty, mine clumped up a little, I'm not good with flour, next time I'll try wondra. Used it on enchilada pie/caserole and my DH loved it. Yum!
Absolutely loved it! I did use fresh garlic, but otherwise made as instructed.
Being an old Arizona girl, I thought no recipe could top the one I had been using forever, but I was wrong! This recipe was the best bar none! I made a couple of changes though, no onion powder (just didn't have any) and substituted 5 roasted garlic cloves plopped right into the sauce whole instead of the garlic powder. I roast the garlic in olive oil in the oven and used that as well in this recipe. This made quite a bit of sauce which we used on EVERYTHING from tacos to enchilada casserole, it was so tasty. Thank you for posting this recipe, it is my new favorite!!!
