Home Made Enchilada Sauce



I am about to give you a yummy, easy, and fast recipe for making your very own enchilada sauce. No more buying red sauce from a can. This morning Greg made potatoes and we smothered the potatoes in red sauce making one of my New Mexican favorite breakfast meals...papitas with red sauce!

The recipe:
3 tablespoons of red chili powder (less or more is fine)
3 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (secret ingrediant)
3 cups of water
1 cup of tomato sauce ( I use spagetti sauce-cause it's thick)

mix dry ingrediants together, throw into a pot with the water and stir aggressively at first and consistently until it becomes thick. Add tomato sauce at the end. You are done!
