Red Enchilada Sauce

Easy Delicious Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

Homemade Enchilada sauce makes all the difference in your dishes! The flavors are richer and it just tastes so much fresher. I definitely recommend making your own.

Red Enchilada Sauce

• 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
• 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
• 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
• 2 Tablespoons Flour
• 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
• 1 teaspoon Cayenne
• 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
• 1/4 teaspoon Cumin
• 1/2 teaspoon Mexican Oregano
• 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
• 2 cups Chicken Bone Broth
• 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
• Splash of Hot Sauce (i.e. Cholula)
• Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Heat oil in large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, then add in the spices and seasoning; stir continually until fragrant.
  2. Whisk in the flour and tomato paste, cooking for 2-3 minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste. Pour in the broth, vinegar and hot sauce; whisking until thickened. Reduce heat to low and cover.
  3. Cook for 20 minutes; allowing the flavors to marry.
  4. Use in Enchiladas or over tacos, burritos and chicken!
