Homemade Enchilada Sauce


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!

Inspired by: Emeril Lagasse



  • 3 tablespoons of Vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 10 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


In a medium saucepan heat oil and then add flour and stir with a wooden spoon.  Cook for 1 minute.

Add chili powder and cook for 30 seconds.

Add stock, tomato sauce, suagar, salt, and cumin. Stir to combine.

 Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes.

The sauce will thicken and smooth out.

 Serve atop your favorite enchiladas.
