This homemade Red Enchilada Sauce recipe comes together with a handful of pantry staple ingredients in just 15 minutes for a savory, spicy addition to all your favorite meals!

I finally created a failproof red enchilada sauce recipe. 

3 tablespoons olive oil 3 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 3 teaspoons chili powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 tablespoons tomato paste 2 cups chicken broth 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar


Measure the dry ingredients, and whisk them together in a medium-sized bowl.


Add the olive oil to a medium pot over medium heat, allowing it to get nice and hot.


Whisk the dry ingredients into the hot oil, whisking constantly for one minute. 


The spices will become darker, which is what we want! Whisk in the tomato paste. Then, slowly whisk in the chicken broth.


Bring the mixture to a simmer. Then, cook for about five minutes or until it’s thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.


Remove the pot from the heat, and whisk in the vinegar. Use your sauce right away, or store it for later!


Even more flavorful than anything you’ll find in the store, it’s quick to make and perfect to whip up for easy weeknight meals.
