Why buy canned enchilada sauce when you can make it so much tastier at home? Sure, the canned stuff is convenient. But this recipe is easy to make, and it freezes well.  Make a big batch and store it in your freezer in pint or quart jars.  You’ll have convenience and taste all in one.  It was created to use it over No-Bake Enchiladas.  But don’t stop there.  Try it as a dip with Easy Oven Fries, Polenta Oven Fries, or Sweet Potato Fries.   Or maybe you’ll drizzle it in a sandwich, like Refried Bean and Veggie Sandwiches.    Or spread some on your Simple Morning Scrambles.   Have other creative ideas?  Please share them.
