Enchilada Sauce

This enchilada sauce has a fresh taste and is so easy to make. I think you will love it!


When I was making my Short Rib Enchiladas, it occurred to me that I could make the sauce......and most likely make it taste better than the canned sauce you buy at the supermarket. There are many different types of enchilada sauce, but, most common is this tomato based sauce. The ingredients are pretty simple and it is quick to make.

Enchilada Sauce

 3 T oil - grape seed, olive oil or canola

3 T flour

2 T chili powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

1/2 tsp. Cumin

1/2 tsp. oregano

1 -8 ounce can tomato sauce

1 1/2 cup chicken broth

Over a medium set burner heat the oil in a saucepan. Add flour and using a flat whisk or fork whisk until thick. Add the spices, continuing to whisk for about a minute. Making sure the flour is cooked. Add the tomato sauce slowly, whisking and then add the broth. Whisk until smooth and thickened.


 An enchilada is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savory sauce. Originally from Mexican cuisine, enchiladas can be filled with various ingredients, including meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables, or combinations.
