You'll never want to buy a can of enchilada sauce again ! I tried every brand I could find. All tasted like the can or too bitter. And made tons of tomato based recipes, but still not the same as in the restaurants. Until I found a recipe in a community cookbook about 20 years ago and adjusted it to what I think is one if not the best I have ever tasted. Now I compare theirs to mine.
