Blender Enchilada Sauce

This Blender Enchilada Sauce recipe is a super easy and versatile enchilada sauce made in the blender. Perfect for tacos, soups, enchiladas, and more!

I have been sooo behind on my blog posts, sorry! The funny thing is I have recipes all ready to share but technology bites a big one and crapped out on me. I am currently typing this post on my iPhone (so I guess thanks technology) while I await a new laptop charger to be delivered so I can edit and upload my pictures for you. So once I have my pictures ready you will finally see this recipe for Blender Enchilada Sauce!

So enchiladas are a great family dinner option, easy to make and delicious! My biggest beef with enchiladas are actually the store bought sauce, it’s basically tomato purée, sugar, and other random chemicals. Well I thought to myself this sauce seems simple enough to make at home without all the random chemicals. And yep I was right. A handful of ingredients and a blender makes delicious Blender Enchilada Sauce in under 5 minutes. Whoop whoop!

So my beef with enchiladas has been solved. Along with this Blender Enchilada Sauce I have been working on a Leftover Chicken Enchilada recipe that I’ll be sharing next (I’ll put the link up once it’s published link is below in tips & tricks). Together these recipes are unstoppable! But seriously, from scratch enchiladas are so good and now with Blender Enchilada Sauce they are so much easier to make for dinner!

• The best part about making your own enchilada sauce is you can change up the spice level to suite your tastes, add more spices like a jalapeño if you like it hot or keep it how it is if you like it mild

• This does make quite a bit of sauce probably enough to make a couple meals

• Use this recipe to make my Leftover Chicken Enchiladas or my Slow Cooker Black Bean Tortilla Soup

I wanna make this at home. But before that, I have to buy a good blender.
