Enchilada sauce mix
In my November randomness post, I alluded to using an enchilada sauce mix, and some readers were interested in the recipe. Alas, I find that that recipe is not on my computer anywhere. I have it scribbled down on the recipe for the Tortilla Enchilada Soup, but cannot find it elsewhere. I don't even know where I found it to begin with. Hence this post.
ENCHILADA SAUCE MIX (for equivalent to 1 can red enchilada sauce)
Combine with 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes to approximate 1 can of enchilada sauce.
Or, and this is what I do: quadruple the recipe, measuring the spices into a small bowl, and mix them well. Transfer to a small jar and label. When ready to use, combine 2 Tablespoons of the spice mixture with the 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes.
This has worked very well in every recipe I've tried it in. As I mentioned to Vee, I really don't know how authentic it tastes, but it's great in recipes and the price is right!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
