Today, I’m over at Keeper of the Home sharing a super easy Enchilada Pot Pie recipe that was an idea cooked up by my youngest son. He’s such a genius!
The base of the recipe calls for enchilada sauce, of course. But rather than rely on those canned sauces with sketchy ingredients, I took some time to perfect a delicious healthy enchilada sauce that can easily be adjusted to thick or thin, whichever you prefer – and it only takes 30 minutes or less to put together!
I know, I know. Time is always an issue. Believe me, as a Stay-in-the-Car Mom, constantly carting boys here and there, I’m pressed for time too. But seriously, let me share 3 great reasons to commit 30 minutes to make your own enchilada sauce: (recipe below)
1. Again, have you taken a look at the ingredients in canned enchilada sauces out there? yikes!
2. It’s super easy and a big batch can easily be divided up and kept frozen for months. bonus!
3. The taste is amazing and for me, that’s reason enough to make my own homemade sauce! yum!
So I encourage you to schedule a little time on your next prep day to cook up a batch or two of this sauce recipe I’m sharing below. Then be sure to pop over to Keeper of the Home for my awesome Enchilada Pot Pie recipe. This hearty satisfying meal will bring a smile to your family’s faces and perhaps a sweat to their brows, depending upon how hot you make the sauce!
P.S. Not only is the enchilada sauce perfect for freezing, but so is my Enchilada Pot Pie recipe. Just check out the recipes notes at Keeper of the Home for details.
