Enchilada Sauce - Recipe

I found/tried this recipe last week and was really pleased with how it all turned out.

There were a few things that I did differently due to our likes/tastes.

I omitted the cumin that was called for in the original recipe due to the fact it makes me quite ill.

Red pepper was used in place of that spice and I do not like to use salt in my cooking so I used onion powder.

The biggest was done on error but gave me a wonderful result and that would be using tomato paste. You can use the tomato sauce if you would like just reduce done the amount of water to 1 1/2 cups.

Excellent results and I will be making my own from this point on.

Great tasting sauce!

Easy to make and so much better than the canned stuff.

This is a bit on the thicker side but you can add more water to thin it down some.

I'll have to try this. I can actually find all of the ingredients-not always the case for mexican food.
