You'll want to keep this recipe on-hand for homemade Enchilada Sauce any time a recipe calls for it. It will keep in the refrigerator for a week. I freeze mine in ice cube trays and then in Ziploc bags and use as needed. You will never buy the canned store-bought stuff again. This homemade red enchilada sauce is easy, quick, and super delicious!
