Fabulous enchilada sauce! I used Cubanelle peppers because that's the only kind my grocer had in stock and they were not too hot, smokey & delish. I had a little bit of a hard time roasting & peeling because the directions I had were off (they called for 5 minutes and they needed more like 10). Will definitely use again, made a sauce that blows the canned stuff out of the water, thanks Miss Annie!1Reply
Fantastic! I made a green chilie, chicken enchilada casserole...spread a little of the enchilada sauce in bottom of 9 x 13 lasagna pan, dipped corn tortillas in the sauce and layered with shredded chicken, fresh minced onions, cheese...another layer of tortillas dipped in sauce, etc...covered and baked for 30 minutes...delicious. Better than 5 stars. Served with Mexican rice and refried beans...topped enchiladas with a dollop of sour cream and drizzled with more enchilada sauce....wow! Thank you for sharing this recipe.1Reply
Four large Anaheim peppers equaled exactly one pound, but after roasting and chopping amounted to only one cup. So I settled for a half-batch of sauce. I added the garlic before the flour, and since I was using canned chicken broth, cut the salt way back. Anyway, this is THE perfect green sauce for me, with a nice consistency and mild zing. I'll use it to make my daughter's favorite recipe #159073. But next time I MUST REMEMBER to buy eight (two pounds) Anaheim peppers. Now, I'm just waiting for them to go on sale!1Reply
