Easy homemade enchilada sauce, perfect for all of your favorite Mexican dishes!

So like the masses… we didn’t win the big ticket. Bummer. But, we did win four dollars! I like to think of it as four dollars richer and not four dollars recouping what we lost on the purchased tickets but hey… whatever, right? I’m almost tempted to buy tickets for the next drawing simply because it probably has the best chance for winning, given that most people will have sworn off lottery tickets for a while after losing during this last one. But… I’m not much of an optimist when it comes to these things so I feel like I’d just be throwing the money away agin. I can completely see how addicting it can easily be for some people to keep trying though.

And now, I have Hunger Games in my head… “may the odds be ever in your favor”. If only!

Totally unrelated but if you love Adele, you have to watch this carpool karaoke clip. Seriously hilarious.

I’m head over heels in love with this enchilada sauce. It’s my absolute favorite and use it at least several times a month on various recipes from pizza to pasta and more!

This is hands down the absolute best homemade enchilada sauce. And, because it’s so ridiculously easy to whip up, there is absolutely no excuse to not make it! If you have 5 minutes and can do some light whisking, you can make this. It’s also super easy to customize the level of spiciness. Kick it up a notch, tone it down… whatever works for you!

This easy homemade enchilada sauce is perfect for all of your favorite Mexican dishes and is sure to become your new go to sauce!
