Red Enchilada Sauce

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Ten-Minute-Enchilada-Sauce/Detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Thumb&e11=enchilada%20sauce&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page

In addition to this recipe,

sauté 1 small carrot in olive oil for 5 minutes to add sweetness

add 1/2 small onion and 1/2 jalapeño pepper to the carrot and cook for an additional 5 minutes

It is up to the chef how he/she wants the sauce.  I like to make a “vegetable” sauce that is a little more chunky.  You may want a smooth sauce (recipe below.)

I also add 2-3 tbsp raw cacao powder after adding the tomato sauce and water.  It gives it a slight chocolatey taste to buffer the chili powder.
