    Jamie Renee's Note:

    This is the tastiest red enchilada sauce I have ever had! I could literally just eat it with a spoon. The secret is cocoa powder, do not miss that step! I found it on the Texas Monthly cooking forum. A lot of times I double the recipe since its so good. Serve it over enchiladas, burritos, or grab a straw! Its scrumptious!!

      You saved the day with your recipe! I had just dumped out a recipe that called for roasting dry peppers and making an enchilada sauce. It was very bitter and my meat was cooked so I was committed to make enchiladas so I came across your recipe. I added a teaspoon of cumin and cut the water to 2 cups and used a 15oz can of tomato sauce. I used 2T of regular chili powder and 1T of chipotle chili powder which made it smokey and spicey. Very nice and flavorful. I will use it again.

      I LOVE this recipe! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! I've made it exactly like it says and it came out great! I now cut the recipe in half & it comes out great too! I just made it tonight and since I've had a cold I added some adobo seasoning from Penzey's Spices & it was so awesome. Everyone raved at how it tasted like they were at a Mexican restaurant! This recipe is so easy & it just tastes so good!
