Very Easy Enchilada Sauce


I came across an enchilada pasta bake a few weeks ago on pinterest and along with that recipe was a recipe for enchilada sauce.  The ingredients were some that I already had in my pantry so I gave it a shot.  Anything is better than the stuff in the can.  It was so easy to make and tasted fantastic!  I used it all for my pasta bake and then I made it again when I reheated the pasta bake to add into the casserole so it wouldn’t dry out.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up, give this a try if you are making enchiladas.  It’s fantastic!

  1. Thanks Nancy! I believe I can handle this one….lol. Always needing enchilada sauce, and I really don’t like the canned sauce, and the brand of dry sauce I like isn’t available up here in NJ. Pinned!
