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). 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
