Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This sauce is fresh, hearty and flavorful. The blend of spices makes it delicious! I served this with cheese and onion enchiladas and it was fabulous. I cooked a double batch and kept it warm in my Crock Pot because I was having company. The aroma of this enchilada sauce made everyone so hungry when they entered. So much better than a canned sauce!


1 can(s)
tomato sauce (28oz)
2 can(s)
diced tomatoes (15oz)
1 Tbsp
dried oregano
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper
1 tsp

1 medium
onion diced
1/2 small
green bell pepper


1Place diced canned tomatoes, onion, garlic and bell pepper in food processor and puree.
2Add all ingredients to heavy pan and simmer for 30-45 minutes stirring regularly so not to burn.
