I love making Mexican dishes! I mean who doesn’t love Mexican? It’s always deliciously flavorful, sometimes spicy, sometimes mild, full of fresh ingredients and always filling. I think it is definitely one of my comfort foods.

This recipe today is so easy and is so yummy that you will want to make up loads of it. I divide mine up and keep some fresh, which lasts a good 2 weeks in the refrigerator then freeze the rest in smaller batches that I can take out as I need it.

It’s a wonderfully fresh sauce and so healthy. This is one of those recipes that is great to make at home as you know exactly what ingredients went into it – no chemical names you can’t pronounce and no added fillers. This sauce is great for making Beef Enchiladas, our Turkey/Chicken Enchilada Casserole or  your favorite enchiladas. It’s even super tasty as a salsa for fajitas or tacos too.
