Green chili Enchilada Sauce

JoAnne Graham Recipe

By JoAnne Graham JoAnneG

This recipe was given to me by a friend long time ago. I make this often, when I'm asked to make enchiladas. This can be for any type of enchiladas. Easy and taste much better than any canned green chili you buy in the store.

    I like the idea of this sauce because it has ingredients I have in my pantry. However, it seemed a little thin to me once I made it, so I doubled the roux and added a 3rd can of chilies. Next time I make it (and I will make it again!) I will leave out the salt as there was enough salt in the bullion or I may just make it with low sodium beef stock. All in all, it's a good sauce and worked well in the Shrimp Enchiladas Verde I made for dinner. Thanks!

    Thanks for your comments on the green chili sauce. Yes, everytime I make this for any of my family or guest, they give comments on how they like it. So thanks for your comments.
    Yes, I probably should have mentioned for those who need low salt, to use low sodium stock.
