Accidental Enchilada Sauce

I woke up today REALLY wanting enchiladas. I had everything I needed except enchilada sauce. So I dug around in my pantry and found some stuff… combined it together and came up with this sauce. Oh my gosh – it was SO yummy!! I don’t have any pictures because… it wasn’t planned! Then I was eating and then I forgot! So here’s a yummy recipe with no pictures.

A quick homemade enchilada sauce!
Ingredients
  • 1 - 32oz can of whole tomatoes (I'm sure diced would work too)
  • 1 - 4oz can diced green chilis (mild)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp tapioca starch/flour
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp salt, if desired
Instructions
  1. Puree the tomatoes and green chilis in your food processor or blender until smooth. Do not drain the juices - use those too!
  2. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the tapioca starch and stir to combine.
  3. Pour the tomato/chili puree into the sauce pan with the butter, cook and stir until warm.
  4. Add all the seasonings (I used heaping measurements!) and stir to combine.
  5. That's it!
  6. Use as you would in your favorite enchilada recipe! I used mine to make chicken & cheese enchiladas!

Now go make some yummy enchiladas. I found this made enough sauce for about 2 dozen enchiladas which fit into 2 –  13×9 pans!
