Oil-Free Red Wine Enchilada Sauce


You guys get TWO recipes today. Aren't you lucky?

This recipe is for oil-free Red Wine Enchilada Sauce so simple it shouldn't even be considered a recipe. It's eight ingredients... one of which is water. So that doesn't even really count.

All you need to do is add some spices and liquids to tomato puree and cook until warmed through.

Seriously, that's it.


You could also replace the red wine with additional water or vegetable broth, but that's what makes this sauce special! I'd highly recommend keeping that in.

This sauce is so yummy, and it goes perfectly with my Spinach, Corn, and Black Bean Enchiladas. It's almost like... they were made for each other! (They were.)
