Earlier, I used to make quick version of Enchilada Red Sauce by using following Ingredients
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt (more to taste)
Combine all ingredients in saucepan, mixing well. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Makes 2 cups.
But now no more can tomatoes and feel the flavor of freshness of sauce by using quality ingredients.
