“This recipe is simple, homemade and very yummy! If I'd let them my kids would eat this with a spoon. I use this sauce in my cheesy enchilada bake Cheesy Enchilada Bake, and in my layered enchilada bake Enchilada Bake . You can half the recipe if you wish. I have a large family and the amount is just right for us. There is usually a small amount leftover we use this when reheating the enchiladas in the microwave (if there are any left). Don't let the list of ingredients intimidate you it is a really simple recipe, the most time spent is simmering the sauce.”
