So I've been trying to stay away from as much processed foods as possiable. In some case you cannot avoid them, but in most cases you can. Today I made homemade enchilada sauce. It was so easy and to be honest it so much cheaper making it at home than it would be buying a can on the ready made. So this mommy, will not be buying the canned stuff again.
Also great thing about this recipe is that you can make a larger batch and freeze the sauce for another time. Nothing more helpful when rushing to put something together last minute.
Like always....Happy Cooking!
