I am a lover of Mexican Food!
I really could eat it at least once a week.
Taco's, Burritos, Tamales,
With that being said, I am not a big fan
of the store bought Enchilada sauce.
To me they all taste of to much
chili power with a ton of grease.
So I was on the hunt for a GREAT
sauce recipe. Then I remembered My Mom
made her own when we were growing up.
(why it took me so long to remember this,
I have NO idea!)
You can make this in as big of a batch as
you desire! I am thinking of making a huge batch
up and then canning it to have on hand!
Homemade Enchilada Sauce
2 (15oz.) Tomato Sauce
4 tsp. Chili Powder
1/4 C. White Onion~ minced
1/8 tsp. Garlic~ minced
1/8 tsp. Salt
2 TBSP. Olive Oil
1/2 C. Water
Mix all on the ingredients in a
sauce pan, simmer for 15 minutes.
Homemade Beef Enchilada's
1.5 lbs of Lean Hamburger
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Onion Salt
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/2 C. White Onion ~ diced
1 (4oz.) Green Chili's~*Optional
2 doz. Corn Tortilla's
2 C. Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
Oil for Frying
Brown the meat with all of the seasonings
along with the onion and chili's until
no longer pink. Drain off any excess grease.
Soft Fry corn tortilla's in hot oil,
place them on paper towels to blot
off any oil.
I like to make an assembly line
with all the components. Start by
dipping the fried tortilla in your
homemade sauce, place a heaping spoonful
of meat in the center.Sprinkle with cheese.
Roll up and place in a baking dish seam
side down. Repeat.
Pour remaining sauce over the top
of the rolled enchilada's.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Top with sour cream or any other toppings
you like. Enjoy!
