Simple Enchilada Sauce 

Once you learn to make this you will never ever buy nasty canned Enchilada Sauce ! This taste perfect! You can make it as mild or as hot as you want! 

Fergie’s Simple Enchilada Sauce 

15 dried Anaheim or New Mexico chiles, stems removed 

10-20 dried Serrano peppers (the more you add the spicier), stems removed 

1 gallon water 

1 tablespoon granulated garlic 

2 teaspoons sea salt 

1 teaspoon oregano 

  • Bring gallon of water to a boil. 
  • Once the water boils turn off heat and add the chiles. 
  • Weigh them down with a plate and cover the pan (see pictures) 
  • Allow for chiles ro reconstitute at least 3 hours. 
  • Reserve 5 -6 cups of the chile fluid 
  • Strain the chiles and place into blender with 5 cups of reserved liquid, granulated garlic and sea salt. 
  • If using a Vitamix or Blendtec you only need to blend about 2 minutes … if you using a traditional less powered blender blend for 4-5 minutes with the 6 cups of reserved liquid. 
  • Strain and use or store in containers and freeze
