Saturday morning sauciness...

Good morning! Seth is down for a nap, and we just spent an hour driving around and looking at the last yard sales of the season. It's cold this morning! I got to impress David with my new found knowledge of our little part of the world. We had a good time, but now a young girl's thoughts turn to sauces... =)

I really like making my own homemade sauces and spice mixtures. Most of the time, they turn out to be more flavorful than something I buy in a can, and they usually have less sugar, salt, or preservatives. I made those enchiladas last night, and I think they turned out well, but I'd make a few modifications. I already modified the stuff out of the recipe I got off, so I would truly call this particular recipe my own at this point. =) But this recipe for Red Enchilada Sauce is completely All Recipes, and you can find it there if you type in that name. But here's a shortcut in case you don't want to go there. It's a good sauce, and it's easy.

1 T. olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced onion (I dumped in some onion powder here)
1/2 t. oregano
2 1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. basil
1/8 t. black pepper
dash salt
1/2 t. cumin
1 t. parsley flakes
1/4 c. salsa (I used canned diced tomatos)
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 1/2 c. water

Saute the garlic and onion in oil for 1-2 minutes. Add everything else and bring to boil, lower and simmer 15-20 minutes...

Oh yeah, and Kelli asked for my pizza sauce recipe. I put it up earlier here.
