For some reason, whenever I go to make enchiladas or any sort of dish involving enchilada sauce, I always seem to forget that particular ingredient. This means I have learned to make my own from tomato sauce and spices, which I generally have in the pantry – and luckily it’s super quick and easy to do!
Essentially you just mix together your dry ingredients, which are chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and a bit of flour:
Then add a can of tomato sauce to a small saucepan, dump in your dry mix and 1 1/2 cups of water, and stir everything together. Heat until it’s warmed and thickened as much as you’d like it, and use just like you’d use enchilada sauce in any recipe! You can even taste it as you go and add more salt or chili powder or whatever you like.
