LaVinnia's Story

I needed enchilada sauce for a recipe and discovered the 2 cans I thought I had in the pantry were gone. This works just as well, and in fact, my family likes it better than the prepared stuff.


2 can(s)
tomato paste, no salt added (the small ones)
1 can(s)
ro-tel diced tomatoes and green chilis
3 c
chicken or beef broth, your choice
1 pkg
your choice of taco mix
1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients. If it is too thick, add more broth. Heat through. Can be used for any mexican dish that requires a sauce, or even a taco sauce.

I'm in Puerto Rico and stores just don't carry enchilada sauce here. I came across your recipe, and it's great! Thanks for sharing your "accident".

I, too , need enchilada sauce for tamale pie last night. So glad I found this recipe. So easy and so tasty. I made it according to the instructions, but I love finding recipes for sauces that I can play with and spice up or down to our liking! AWESOME! Definitely a keeper! Probably will never buy regular enchilada sauce again since I usually have everything in my pantry.
