You'll want to keep this recipe on-hand for homemade Enchilada Sauce any time a recipe calls for it. It takes a dish from so-so to over-the-top!

Cook first 2 ingredients in hot oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 2 minutes. Stir in onion; cook, stirring often, 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook, stirring often, 1 minute. Stir in remaining ingredients and 3 cups water. Cook, stirring often, 15 minutes or until thickened.

I love this recipe. I will never buy enchilada sauce again. Next time I'm going to double the recipe and freeze it!
