Candi's Enchilada Sauce

Candi Hummer


I'm more into flavor than I am fire! My folks cant eat the canned stuff (it bothers me too) So I made this and they Love it and it does not bother them at all!! Enjoy!

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!
