Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Chili powder has many different levels of spiciness. I had to substitute because i live in India, and many products are not available here. I used Indian chili powder medium spice and 1/4 cup was too spicy for us, very similar to Old El Paso(R) hot enchilada sauce. So I decreased to half the amount. It is better to start off with too little spice and add more later!

This is nice, but I tried one that used chicken broth instead of water this time and it was an improvement. Happy cooking!!!

I thought I didn't like enchilada sauce. It turns out I don't like enchilada sauce from a can! This sauce is so much better than canned, yet still not quite as good as a Mexican restaurant. Thanks for a much tastier, yet still quick, alternative.

My husband and I were very pleased with this. We were hungry for some mexican enchiladas to use up our left over roast, and we were having a blizzard, here in Denver area. Didnt have to get out. Thanks, I will kepp using this one. I did not add the sugar either after tasting.
