I made some homemade enchiladas for a good friend of mine who had twins a few weeks back.
I wanted to try a new recipe so I scoured the internet until I found a few things that looked good and tried. The enchiladas were a little sweet for what I was used to but this sauce that I made for them is super easy and super delicious. When I buy enchilada sauce in a can I always feel like it is lacking in flavor so I was super happy when this recipe turned out to be great.
It would be a great addition to my old go-to enchilada recipe. They are already sooooo yummy and a great freezer meal if you’re looking to plan ahead or want to whip something up on the fly during the week.
This sauce has a nice smoky flavor from the fire roasted tomatoes and the different spices really make for a rich, deep flavor. I think when I make this again I’ll saute some onions and garlic to blend in with the tomatoes, but otherwise I was happy with the sauce.
Sometimes it’s the little things about a homemade dish that really deepen the flavor. Buying a can is easy but it never tastes quite as good.
I never really liked Mexican food until I was in college and even then I only liked chimichangas. Like, I remember going to a restaurant with Mikey’s family and they made me a special chimichanga because they weren’t on the menu. Now the literal last thing I would ever order is a chimichanga and I could eat Mexican food for every meal. Although enchiladas are also not my first choice I do love them when I have them. The smoky, spicy flavor that is cooked into the tortilla really can’t be beat (recipe coming soon I promise!!).
I don’t know what it’s like by you…but the weather has turned here and it’s cold! I am going to make some soup tonight but these warming enchiladas would also make a great warm meal on a day like today!
I hope you’re having a great week. I PROMISE to share this tasty enchilada recipe with you ASAP!
