With grain free tortillas and dairy free cashew quesos under our belts, we felt like it was about time we put out another sauce (or two)! We wanted to create sauces that you could combine with the former (tortillas and queso, that is), and be dubbed “the whole enchilada.” Introducing our delicious, Whole30 Approved Red Enchilada Sauce and Green Enchilada Sauce!
Both sauces are grain free, gluten free, dairy free, and made from a tasty blend of veggies, avocado oil, and apple cider vinegar. For the red-sauce-lovers, we made a hearty and nostalgic sauce using tomatoes, chili spice, and dates. And for those who prefer all-things-green, our bright and tangy Green Enchilada Sauce is made from whole vegetables like roasted tomatillos, onions, and jalapeños. These sauces can be used in crockpot-recipes, chilaquiles, and other saucy plates bring a little oomph to your plate.
Our enchilada sauces are a loving nod to the enchilada combo-plates we ate at Laredo restaurants growing up. On these plates, some of our most favorite foods come together: tortillas, cheese, rice, and beans. The only thing that makes the experience of eating enchiladas better than what’s already on the plate is enjoying and sharing them with the people you cherish. So, we hope that sharing these sauces with you helps put the “love” into your “enchila-loves.”
Get to know even more about about our sauces below:
Red Enchilada Sauce: Since the beginning of time, humankind has been trying to bottle-up love (or, at least since 1964—remember “Love Potion Number 9,” anyone?). While we’re not here to make love potions, this Red Enchilada Sauce is sure doing the trick because we’re head over heels in love with it! Made with tomatoes, chili spice, and dates, we hope this nostalgic and hearty sauce puts the “love” into your enchila-loves. (Let us know how you like it and maybe we can retable the possibility of naming it “Love Potion Number Siete.”)
Green Enchilada Sauce: As the age-old adage goes, “the best things in life are green.” Or—even if that’s not how it goes—this bright and tangy Green Enchilada Sauce makes a strong case for our alternative interpretation. It’s made from whole vegetables like roasted tomatillos, onions, and jalapeños. Use this sauce to: give your enchiladas a zesty-bite; bring some delight to your next crockpot potluck; or bake some green goodness into breakfast chilaquiles.
