Enchilada Sauce

Can we please get saucy?
I mean, let get super saucy with this enchilada sauce! This sauce has completely rescued us in our Mexican food desires. I feel as if I can honestly count on one hand (and a half) as to how many time I have ordered something other than Ceviche or fajitas as my meal at a Mexican restaurant in the last year and a half. However, one of those treats was when I saw Enchiladas Al Carbon on the menu. I must have overlooked this gem my entire life because when I came across this on the 7 Leguas menu, I squealed. I just thought it was the most genius creation ever. It is chicken tacos AND enchiladas! MIND BLOWN. Of course now I realize it is on every Tex-Mex menu around but hey, it made me really happy.

This sauce is perfect for my Enchilada’s Al Carbon, on chicken, with eggs, or mixed with ground beef for a taco salad. The sky is the limit!

I hope you enjoy!
