I'd love to make homemade enchiladas for a Fiesta themed party I'm planning, but most of the recipes I find use store bought enchilada sauce. They don't sell any at my local grocery store, so I was wondering if anyone had a tested homemade recipe I could use. Thanks! Trix
2 cups chicken stock
3-4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 bag of dried new Mexico chili peppers that have been simmered in water till softened then water drained (Remove the seeds before simmering).
Blend peppers with other ingredients until a paste is made, thin as desired.
Dip white corn tortillas in sauce and warm on griddle then roll with chicken inside (do not let the tortilla get to stiff to roll up). Top with Rancharo cheese & chopped onion. That is all my friend from Mexico does but I like to add the cheese and a little sauce to the chicken in the tortilla. My father adds sauce over the top and bakes it for a while.
Does anyone have a great enchilada gravy they would like to share? Thank you in advance.
