Homemade Enchilada Sauce

I don't think of myself as a food snob. In fact I have said time and time again that you won't find any "crazy sexy ingredients" here. We are all about simple, homemade meals that you can get on the table that are economical. That's my mission. Period. 

However, I don't like canned enchilada sauce. To me it's too runny and has a "tinny" flavor. In short, I think it looks like dirty water and tastes like a can. So there you go. 

However, I love making enchiladas. They are easy, a great way to stretch and use up leftovers and they're tasty. So I decided to try my hand at making Homemade Enchilada Sauce and once I tweaked the recipe enough to get what I wanted... I LOVED IT!

What you'll need:

1 6-ounce can tomato paste

2 cups chicken broth 

1 tbsp oil 

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp onion power

Combine your tomato paste, broth and oil in a sauce pan over a medium heat. Whisk until the tomato paste has fully incorporated with the other ingredients. Add in your seasoning and continue to whisk. Bring to a boil and then turn your heat to low. Let simmer for a few minutes.

This was such a simple recipe and only took a few minutes to pull together.
