Enchilada Sauce

Enchilada Sauce



Enchilada Sauce
My favorite enchilada sauce is Trader Joe's. I usually have several bottles on hand but found my self without after starting my beef enchiladas recipe. So I decided to try my hand at making a homemade sauce. I must say it came out quite good. Not as zippy as Trader Joe's, which was by design. My hubby has a low tolerance for spicy. In my dream world, I would add a couple more jalapenos to the recipe to spice it up a bit more.
