to make your own enchilada sauce:
(i got this recipe from a mexican woman i work with, it's been passed down through her family, so of course there are no accurate measurements, i apologize)...
pour a lot of chile powder (red), or soaked & chopped red chile pods into your blender (as she describes it, up to about the "first line" in the blender--up to a cup of chile.)
add 4 to 6 cloves of minced garlic, and salt to taste
fill the blender the rest of the way up with hot water.
in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the blended mixture with "a big ladelful" (remember, this is a family recipe) of oil (i use canola because it's so much oil). EDIT: I forgot: add 2 tablespoons of flour as well at this point. STIR CONSTANTLY until sauce is thick and smooth.
then use that in your enchiladas, instead of a can!
i have used this on several occasions and it is delicious--spicier and tastier than the canned stuff. i always use chile powder rather than the pods, because the pods are a lot of work. but it is still delicious!! i usually use a lot of salt.
