Homemade Enchiladas Sauce is a complete game-changer.

It’s well worth the 20 minutes it takes to prepare and is so much better than store bought.

Enchiladas Sauce

The homemade enchiladas sauce comes together rather quickly, so it’s well worth the few extra minutes to gather all of your ingredients in advance.  

  • You’ll begin by heating the oil over medium heat in a medium sauce pan.
  • Once hot, whisk in the flour and stir for one minute.
  • Add the chili powder and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the broth, tomato paste, ground cumin, oregano, and salt.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • The sauce will thicken and smooth out as it’s cooked and stirred.

This sauce will transform your Chicken Enchiladas and Loaded Easy Chicken Enchiladas Casserole.
