Enchilada Sauce

Most recently, we made a tomato based enchilada sauce. The enchilada sauce adds the chili to the mix and completes the necessary ingredients for this dish.

Cheese to top off our shredded beef enchiladas

Cheese is not needed, but it makes almost everything better, doesn’t it? I don’t think it would need to be included in the ingredients list to make it an authentic enchilada, but almost every enchilada I have ever had has been smothered with cheese. Besides, cheese is awesome.
