Whenever we have dinner at our favorite local Mexican restaurant, my husband frequently orders enchiladas. His love of them has rubbed off on our kids, evidenced by how they spend most of the meal going between what they've ordered and (much to hubby's chagrin) taking repeated bites off of his plate. Given that my family's appetite for enchiladas is greater than how often we eat out, I decided to learn how to make them.
If you're not used to preparing enchiladas at home, making homemade enchilada sauce might seem a bit intimidating, but it's actually quite easy (or at least my version is simple!). The list of ingredients may seem long, but they are all very likely things you already have in your pantry, spice drawer, refrigerator and freezer.
If you're like me and have a house full of enchilada lovers but want to save a few bucks by making dinner at home, you'll be happy to discover it's easy to do -- and you can make enough so that no one has to pick off of anyone else's plate!
