Easy Homemade Blender Enchilada Sauce

  • Ditch the store-bought can of enchilada sauce and throw all the ingredients for this easy homemade blender enchilada sauce in your blender for a quick and flavorable enchilada sauce that you can use for so many recipes!

    I’ve been craving a lot of Mexican food lately and in particular, enchiladas. It all started when I went to our local Whole Foods during my lunch break and spotted their rotisserie chicken section. Our Whole Foods is pretty awesome in the fact that their rotisserie chicken selection is pretty epic. They have different flavors each day of the week but then they also have their regular naked, herbed, and smoked.

    Our Whole Foods has an in-house smoker so that means they have pretty epic BBQ that you can buy AND they have an entire rotisserie chicken that you can buy SMOKED. The flavor is incredible!!!

    Ditch the store-bought can of enchilada sauce and throw all the ingredients for this easy homemade blender enchilada sauce in your blender for a quick and flavorable enchilada sauce that you can use for so many recipes!

    Because of this smoked rotisserie chicken discovery, it inspired me to make smoked chicken enchiladas (recipe coming tomorrow)! And since with enchiladas, you must have enchilada sauce, I decided to share with you my homemade version of enchilada sauce!

    It is so much better than store-bought and there is no ingredient in this easy homemade blender enchilada sauce that has you scratching your head and thinking, “whaaaaa?” – it’s all-natural ingredients that you probably have in your fridge, pantry, and spice cabinet! Throw it all in a blender and voila! Homemade enchilada sauce :)
