Most Helpful Review

This recipe is exactly as described - mild & flavorful. My picky eater DH loved this sauce so I am adding it to my cookbook. It's also quick & easy to make, and there is enough for a 13x9 pan of enchildadas. Next time I will double the recipe and freeze half for later. Thanks, Annie! See all activity
