  1. This looks much thicker than most enchilada sauces, which are way too runny for my taste. In fact, I’d say it looks downright beautiful! 🙂 Will definitely give this a try ~ thank you!

  2. This was a game changer!!!  My daughter is finally on board with Enchiladas…and we live in Texas!!  The sauce was fresh and flavorful without the over-the-top taste of the canned versions.  And I appreciated not having to cook another step.
