Medium Hot Enchilada Sauce

Medium Hot Enchilada Sauce created by Bonnie G 2

It surprises me how expensive it is to purchase canned enchilada sauce in the store when it is so inexpensive and easy to make. I was also surprised at the few recipes here for red enchilada sauce. This is so easy and inexpensive that everyone can make it. If you like your sauce less spicy, just decrease the amount of chili powder and cumin or increase it if you like it even hotter.

    Made this to top off recipe#403692 and you are so right Carrol; much cheaper than store bought and couldn't get any easier, nice flavor and not to hot, as a matter of fact I think I'd even add a chopped jalapeno next time, DH likes it hot you can tell. Don't think I'll ever have to buy store bought again. Made for Spring PAC 2014

    Hi Carrol, What a good recipe this is, my DH went nuts for it he likes hot sauce. Well he didn't think it was too hot, but I did I guess I'm a wimp, he he he. Well I am under instructions that I must make it again and I agree. It's a lot cheaper than shop bought it's very exspensive here. and you have to go to the big stores to get it. I think I would rather have yours Carrol. Thank you for posting a very nice recipe.
