Green enchilada sauce works for so many different recipes! I use it for chicken enchiladas, chip dip, taco sauce, and chicken burrito filler. However, the uses of this versatile ingredient literally only depend on your imagination.
My first exposure to this sauce came when my dad took cattle to Hatch, New Mexico. He brought home hundreds of cans of Hatch green chili. Hatch brags that they remain the chili capital of the world. I would also add that they make the best Mexican American dishes. They taste wonderful! If Eccentric.
My Green Enchilada Sauce
I did not come up with this recipe on my own. I Googled everything under the sun until I found about half a dozen recipes and I extracted the common ingredients from all of them to make my basic recipe. After a little experimentation, I added minor ingredients until I found the flavor I liked. If you happen to know of any other little tricks you can add to this, or even major improvements, I’d love to hear them!
I grew up in Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua, México, where people either owned cattle ranches or fruit orchards. Much of my work ethic came from working on Rancho La Mesa (my family’s ranch). That ranch also sparked what grew into my wild imagination. I read somewhere that you should write the story you want to read, and that stuck with me. My writing began in sixth grade, around the time I began learning to type.
