I love Mexican food and I love to cook it at home but I don’t love canned enchilada sauce.
Homemade Enchilada Sauce with Dried Chiles is the answer to all my home-cooked Mexican food woes.
Sometimes I get in my head about certain things. I imagine it’s too difficult to make some recipes from scratch. My addiction to Food Network has helped me gain confidence in the kitchen. Trial and error brought me to this amazing enchilada sauce recipe and I’m delighted to share it with you.
This sauce has mild to medium heat. My husband says it’s the perfect slow build-up that sits in the back of your mouth.
I use this sauce on wings, in my chili recipes, in homemade salsa… you won’t believe how it amps up the flavor of other dishes.
You can find all of the ingredients at a good grocery store or Mexican market. I’ve also added links for where I order mine.
