  • Summary

    This homemade red enchilada sauce has authentic Mexican flavor! It's so good and easy, you'll never go back to store-bought sauce again. You can even make a double batch and freeze half of it for later. Recipe as written below yields about 2 cups (16 ounces) sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 tablespoons flour (whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and gluten-free flour blends all work!)
    • 1 tablespoon ground chili powder (scale back if you're sensitive to spice or using particularly spicy chili powder)
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
    • ¼ teaspoon salt, to taste
    • Pinch of cinnamon (optional but recommended)
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 2 cups vegetable broth
    • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar
    • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
