This Easy Enchilada Sauce is simple and easy to make at home and it’s so much more flavorful than store bought!
I feel like my cupboards hold so many props that I’m surprised they don’t jump off the wall screaming “Save me!”.
There is none. Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Prop-o gone-o. Yet the cupboards are still there. It’s baffling.
Am I alone with these silly little problems?
And then, get this!… have you ever had a day where your camera wants to take a day off, and you so don’t? Yep. Now you are as up-to-date with my current situation as I am. 🙂
Aren’t you glad you stopped by?
Nothing like feeling good about yourself to know that someone else might be having a worse day!
Yes? You’re welcome.
Thank goodness this recipe was so simple and easy to make. It kind of cuts a girl a break, you know what I’m sayin’?
I lllooovvveee Mexican food (hellooooo Enchiladas!), so making my own Enchilada Sauce was as natural as stirring with my arm. 🙂
If you’ve never made homemade Enchilada Sauce, I highly recommend it! You can tweak it to your flavor preference and it’s a noticeable difference from the cans you buy at the store.
