    I make it, and pour over (my very own shrimp enchilada casserole - see other recipes) enchiladas, Verdes, or anything that calls for salsa or obviously enchilada sauce!! A family favorite - plates are licked clean!

      Made up this recipe almost as soon as I'd tagged it, & did leave out the optional red pepper flakes, 'cause the jalapeno that I did include was plenty of heat for us! It made a great dip for some cheese sticks & I'll be using it on a couple of other recipes over the next few days, including a couple of baked chicken breasts! You have a VERY, VERY TASTY SAUCE HERE ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & revciewed in New Kids on the Block tag]

      I realized too late that I had no tomato sauce in the pantry, so had to sub a can of tomato paste/can of water plus about 1/2 can of pureed diced chili ready tomatoes for the tomato sauce. I also had no fresh cilantro (love cilantro!), so subbed dried. (Not the same I know, but didn't have time to go out.) It was really tasty with some ground beef and cheese enchiladas for supper last night! Cooked up fairly quickly and was better than canned sauce and one recipe made enought to generously sauce a full pan of enchiladas if using the sauce mixed with meat filling as well. It was a bit spicy with the jalapeno (used jarred) and the red pepper flakes, but that was okay with me! SOrry to make all the changes I made, but just shows it can be a "use what you have" recipe! Made for I recommend tag game.
