We have a few different enchilada recipes at our house that are big hits… let’s see, there’s regular Enchiladas, Enchilada Casserole (always a family fave), Potato and Kale enchiladas (creamy and yummy!), and Michelle’s Spinach Artichoke Enchiladas (another yummy!) So we always need a good enchilada sauce! Buying one at the store can not only cost more, but often the ingredient list isn’t the healthiest. So make your own!
-1/2 cup oil (I use coconut oil)
-1/4 cup flour (whole grain is all I use)
-1/2 cup chili powder (yes, that much!)
-Can of tomato sauce
-3 cups Water
-1/2 tsp Cumin
-1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
-1/2 tsp Sea Salt
-1/4 tsp Onion Powder
Heat oil, stir in flour and chili powder.
Reduce heat to medium, stir constantly.
Stir in tomato sauce, water, cumin, garlic powder, sea salt, and onion powder.
Stir until smooth and slightly thickened. Salt to taste.
This makes a large batch of sauce. It freezes well if you have extra!
