Enchilada sauce is the true star in enchiladas. Here's 5 homemade enchilada sauce recipes -- that are easier than you might think.
While I've made enchiladas many, many times for my family, it was only a few years ago that I tried making homemade enchilada sauce from scratch.

Just like my Mango Guacamole that I've shared previously, this one includes mango, but it also has one of my husband's favorite fruits: pineapple. I've call it Tropical Guacamole!

If you love enchiladas like our family does, then you must try making homemade enchilada sauce.
Until recently, I used only canned enchilada sauce. In California, I had several to choose from, but I would usually go with the least expensive one.
