I know! Three recipes in a row is way out of the norm for me. Food blogging obviously isn't my forte, but mommy blogging is right up my ally and it just so happens that a big part of being mom is also cooking. But I do promise this is the last recipe for a while!
So for years I've trying to make homemade enchilada sauce, and until now I had no success. Everything was too tart, or too complicated, or just too much work be worth it.
Until now. I stumbled across this recipe looking for some grain-free enchilada ideas. The enchiladas were so-so. The sauce was outstanding and super easy! I am hooked. This sauce is thicker than most canned enchilada sauce. I like it that way, but you can easily adjust the amount of beef broth to thin in out if you prefer. It's just the right about of spicy for us (which is not a lot), but I think a couple pinches of red pepper wouldn't do any harm if you prefer to hot stuff. So here you go. The easiest and tastiest enchilada sauce ever. You're welcome.
Homemade Enchilada Sauce
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 cup beef broth
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk with a fork.
See told it was easy. I use this sauce to top enchiladas, but also as base for "throw everything in a pan night". I add whatever steamed vegetables are handy, ground meat of some kind, and rice. Drizzle some enchilada sauce over it, and you have "taco rice". Love it!
