Home-made Enchilada Sauce (and Gluten Free and Dye Free)

When I shop for different foods at the grocery store , I am very conscience of every ingredient that is in an item. If I can’t pronounce it, it probably should not be in my body.  We don’t eat anything with dyes in it, stay away from extra salts… and avoid as many chemicals as possible.  (My sister congratulates me on my journey in “turning crunchy” – check out her website at www.turningcrunchy.com) Once I realized that so many of those chemicals were hurting my kids… I started checking out all of them.  (Remember – I have one deathly allergic to red dye, one who is gluten and lactose intolerant, 2 others who are on a processed and dye free diet, etc)

  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1-16 ounce can tomatoes, diced & undrained
  • 1-8 ounce can of tomato sauce (We go through a lot of tomatoes in this house, but a few times a year I make a huge batch of homemade tomato sauce and paste from scratch.)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1-4 ounce can of green chilies (We grow our own chilies)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (We use pink Himalayan salt in our house only)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (We make our own chili powder from dehydrating chilies from our garden)

Melt butter in saucepan on stove. Add onions and garlic and sauté until tender. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chilies, sugar and seasonings. Simmer for about 15 minutes until heated.
