re: Enchilada sauce ....does anyone have a recipe for it? (Posted on 8/24/14 at 5:31 pm to Trout Bandit)
New Mexico Green Sauce
1 tablespoon shortening or oil 1 cup chicken broth or veggie broth 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic powder 2 tablespoons flour 3/4 teaspoon salt to taste 1/4 to 1 cup chopped green chile (preferably roasted Hatch. Roasted Anaheims will work but you may want to add a jalapeno or 2 for the heat as anaheims are what I would call mild in heat).
1. Heat shortening in a medium-sized skillet on medium heat. 2. Sauté the chopped onion in shortening. Add flour and cook for 1 minute. 3.Add all remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.
If the sauce is too spicy you can add a teaspoon of canned tomato sauce and re taste. Keep adding tomato sauce in small increments until you get the heat down to where you like. I add about 2 tsp of tomato sauce always as I like the added acid hit.
Then you can follow my New Mexico Red Sauce recipe for making the stacked enchiladas. LINK
