      Thank you. Wanted to make Enchiladas tonight with some left over pork and just realized I was out of sauce. Not planning to grocery shop till Thursday and didn’t want to make a trip just for sauce.

      This one sounds great.

      Thought I had enchilada sauce, but discovered I was all out. My husband agreed that our enchiladas were better using this sauce than when using the store bought sauce. I won’t need to buy enchilada sauce ever again.

      The ingredients are ones I always have on hand. Three strikes against the store bought version!
