Secret Ingredient Enchiladas Sauce Recipe

What’s the secret ingredient to my enchiladas? The sauce doesn’t come from a can!  It’s so easy to make and yes, it’s good for you without funky ingredients like citric acid that’s really not good for you especially if you have arthritis, Fibro, or auto-immune. 

PS. Did you know that most citric acid no longer comes from citrus? I know. I thought it did too!

Easy Enchilada Sauce

3 tablespoons gf flour of choice

2 tablespoons chili powder or Muskoka Pantry Mexican Mole Seasoning (PS It’s made with cocoa powder) it is ahh-mazing!

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground garlic powder

½ tsp ground black pepper

½ teaspoon dried oregano flakes

½ teaspoon Muskoka Pantry El Salvador Sun Sea Salt

¼ tsp cinnamon (if using MP Mexican Mole skip the cinnamon)

1 ½  cups tomato puree or tomato sauce 

2 cups vegetable stock

2 tablespoons olive oil


In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat and gently sprinkle in flour and spices. Stir until the mixture is lightly browned and fragrant. This only takes a couple of minutes.

Turn down heat and add tomato sauce and stir vigorously to combine using a whisk. Add broth and continue to stir until to remove any lumps.

Bring heat back up to medium and simmer seasoned sauce for about 7-10 minutes.

If the sauce is too thick, thin it with additional stock or a bit of water. It should coat a spoon and flow smoothly.

Use this sauce in your next enchilada recipe!
