Enchilada Sauce


When you are craving Mexican food, anything from enchiladas, soups, and casseroles, using a quick gluten-free enchilada sauce is an easy way to layer on flavor. Many store brands contain flour, so instead I make this flourless sauce in only 5 minutes using canned tomato sauce and pantry staple spices."

Let's Make It!

Add in the tomato sauce, vinegar and spices and bring to a low simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in chicken broth to your desired consistency. Use on enchiladas, huevos rancheros, or stir in taco meat.

How Can I Thicken The Sauce?

For a thicker sauce, do not add broth to the recipe and for an even thicker consistency, you can also stir in a couple tablespoons of tomato paste. To replicate a canned sauce you will need to thin it out slightly.
