Awesome Enchilada Sauce Recipe

A few weeks ago, I resolved to try to cook at least one new thing (something that I had never cooked before) each week. Making enchiladas from scratch was my most recent attempt at fulfilling this. the following is the recipe that I used to create my very own sweet and spicy red enchilada sauce.

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp flour1 14.5 oz can whole tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo
  • ½ tbsp adobo sauce (from peppers)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chicken stock

In blender or food processor, combine tomatoes, garlic, pepper, sauce, salt, cumin, oregano and cinnamon, and puree.

Heat oil in a small saucepan over med-high heat.

Add flour, and whisk the mixture to make a simple roux.

Whisk in tomato mixture and chicken stock, and stir constantly over medium heat to remove any lumps.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.
