Enchilada Sauce Recipe

Don’t even think about using that stuff in the can. This enchilada sauce is too easy to make and it tastes so much better.

Use it on enchiladas, burritos or for a twist on Huevos Rancheros slip a couple fried eggs on a couple of warm corn tortillas and substitute this sauce for the salsa. Feel free to experiment with different types of chiles.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have the roux or don't feel like making it, you can make a quick roux in a pot with 1 tbsp each of oil and all-purpose flour. Add your puree to the pot after the roux has browned and simmer 5 minutes.

No, there’s no chocolate in it but it’s a must for a good pot of gumbo. Chocolate Roux is used for thickening liquids and chocolate simply refers to the color of the roux. It’s also good for making gravy. Just add it to some beef stock.

I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic than I can count trying to find that perfect salsa I get at my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsa’s, this is the one I love.
