Green Enchilada Sauce
A can of store-bought enchilada sauce is convenient, but in my opinion it can be a little pricey unless it’s on a good sale. This recipe is inexpensive, fast and simple, and makes more than 2 cups. The only ingredient you need to remember is a can of diced green chiles; everything else is a basic item that should be in most kitchens. I store green chiles in my food storage (purchased in bulk on sale), so this is a recipe I can make any time. It makes more than a standard can of enchilada sauce and costs me less than a dollar.

Slowly add 2 cups water and 2 tsp. chicken bullion.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. When sauce begins to thicken, remove from heat. Use with any recipe that calls for green enchilada sauce.
