Rich and Flavorful Enchilada Sauce

“I came by this recipe completely by accident one day when I was making a red sauce for another Mexican-style dish, and when I tasted it I realized it was the perfect rich but mild enchilada sauce for me! Rich and flavorful, this one is a winner. It's fast and easy to make, and tastes much better than the canned variety. If you like your enchilada sauce spicier, add some minced jalapenos or some hot chili powder. I plan to do some canning this fall, and batches of this sauce in jars is on the list.”

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir together the boiling water and bouillon granules until dissolved.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Use in your favorite enchilada recipes!
  4. *Note:I prefer using 1 tsp of Maggi Chicken with Chipotle bouillon cube and 1 tsp of Chicken and Tomato bouillon cube (in the international aisle, from Nestle products) instead of 2 tsp beef bouillon; please note that most Maggi bouillon cubes contain 2 tsps, so you'll be using half-cubes.
  5. Makes about 4 cups (2 cups is usually enough for one batch of enchilada casserole).
