I think the Las Palmas brand is the closest to being authentic. They have both the green and the red sauce and comes in mild, medium or hot. Either that or you can make it. It's really easy. Use tomatillos and either jalepenos or serrano chilies and of course fresh garlic and seasonings. I can't wait to try your Manicotti recipe. Thanks Laura!

This version of your stuffed manicotti also sounds delish! Will be trying both versions for sure

Can anyone share what brands of enchilada sauce they use (in this recipe & in general)? I am having terrible luck finding a canned one that isn't gross. I live in an area with a distinct lack of decent Mexican food. I miss the S.W. for that.

A little off topic, but I'm also looking for a good hot sauce (red or green) like they serve at taco trucks. Man, I miss Filiberto's...
