Homemade Enchiladas Sauce.
The sauce comes together rather quickly, so it’s well worth the few extra minutes to gather all of your ingredients in advance. I also try to use nice rich homemade chicken broth whenever possible, but boxed works well too. Make this sauce…trust me, you will love it…and your spouse will call you a stud. I’ll take that.
