Enchilada Sauce & Taco Seasoning ( Homemade)
I, use both of these recipes often they taste just as good as what you can get at the store but for me it's a fracation of the price because most everything is already on hand.
Enchilaada Sauce ( From Southrn Living Cookbook 1981 p.194)
1/3 C. Oil
1 Clove Garlic, Crushed
3 T. All Purpose Flour
2 T. Chili Powder
1 1/2 C. Hot Water, Divided
1/2 t. Salt
Combine oil, crushed garlic, and flour in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is lightly browned.
Dissolve chili powder in 1/4 hot water; stir into flour mixture. Add remaining 1 1/4 cups hot water, stirring constantly. Stir in salt. Cook sauce over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Yield: 1 3/4 Cups
Taco Seasoning ( Great Recipes for Good Health Cookbook p. 30)
1/3 C. Onion Flakes
3 T. Ground Cumin
1 1/2 t. Chili Powder
1/2 t. Cayenne Pepper
1/2 t. Garlic Flakes
Place all ingredeints in a 1-pint jar, cover tightly, and shake well to mix.Use to season ground beef or beans, allowing 2 to 3 tablespoons of the mix and 1/2 cup of water for each pound of meat or beans. Store the mix in a cool dry place for up to 2 months. Makes about 3/4 Cup

Awesome! Thank you. I will definitely use the taco seasoning recipe often. I might try the enchilada sauce recipe, but my family prefers the green chile enchilda sauce, so I won't get to use it often. I like both the red and the green, myself. So thank you!

I make my own taco seasoning the same only with real garlic and onion which I cook up with the meat and then add the rest of the spices.
I might give the Enchilda Sauce a try. Thanks.
