Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Homemade Enchilada Sauce! I used to not like Mexican food but now I have found a few things I actually like. I love Enchiladas!!
They are delicious and easy to make! This sauce is a little more mild which I like, spicy stuff is just not that appetizing to me. Surprisingly Matt agrees with me on this! Add this to your enchiladas and you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I love a great enchilada sauce and this looks soooo good! Thanks for linking up at #FoodieFriDIY – hope to see you again this week, can't wait to see what you link up!

  2. Sounds like a great recipe for a red enchilada sauce. I have one for a white enchilada sauce that I found a couple of years ago and my family loves that one. Look forward to trying this – pinned.
