Homemade enchilada sauce made with just 7 ingredients is my new favorite diy recipe. I will never buy it in a can again!
Necessity is the mother of invention. Isn’t that what they say? In my kitchen, a lot of diy recipes happen because I simply don’t want to run to the store for just one thing. And then you do a happy dance because you just made the-bomb-dot-com sauce that is not only cheaper but took 5 minutes to whip up.
- chili powder
- ground cumin
- tomato sauce
- chicken stock
How to make Enchilada Sauce?

How much sauce does this recipe make?
This recipe is really quick and easy. It makes 3 cups of sauce, which makes it way cheaper than buying the sauce in a can. Before I never had enough sauce from just one can. I like to dip the corn tortillas in a warmed up sauce to soften them and make them more roll-able. If you know what I mean. The rest of the sauce goes all over the enchiladas and is topped with cheese. Then all you need to do is bake them! So crazy good!
