Default Enchilada Sauce

Does anyone know how to make that thick light orangegish
enchilada sauce served in so many restaurants? I don't mean
the deep red spicy kind, but the light orangey mild kind.

This is a very basic and very boring recipe I got off of a website a long
time ago. Naturally I add chile peppers and jazz it up to suit my own
taste buds but this is NOT spicy. I don't recall if it's orange or not.

Michael, I didn't realize that such a request could possibly be fulfilled!
This seems to be quite edible even with the tomatoes. I am no longer a
stickler for "proper stuff" and use canned Las Palmas enchilada sauce. My
only thought was to add some milk to the Las Palmas to make it "orangie".

The darkening as well as the spice may come from the chili powder and
cumin you use. Shop for the lightest chili powder, or use some two or
three years old and reduce or eliminate the cumin and you may get a
lighter milder sauce. I don't know if you'd call it enchilada sauce.
Unripe tomatoes may also help. Bleck!

I was thinking like you Charlie. Some restaurants serve a sort of suiza
sauce where they make a mild red sauce and add cream/sour
cream/evaporated milk to it. Normally it's a white sauce but sometimes
I've seen it orange colored.

Here's a rendition I spotted online that might fill the bill

Enchilada Suiza Sauce
8 large tomatoes
11/2 tbsp oil
6 chiles de arbol, lightly toasted
1 pasilla or guajillo chile (pasilla is milder), lightly toasted
1 large white onion, quartered
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 cup water
1 cup crema media ácida or American sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste


In large skill, heat oil and cook tomatoes until blackened and softened,
about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, soak chiles in water for 15 minutes to
soften. Remove stems, seeds and membranes if desired. In food processor,
blend together tomatoes, chiles, onion, garlic, water and crema or sour
cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper and pour into a large
saucepan. Heat thoroughly.

ink.net:


Sometimes I'll use a commercially made sauce. I don't know why. I
usually
end up jazzing it up anyway. There is a lot of lee way with the basic
sauce I posted and I use it often. I'll even make it for burritos
sometimes. Marcella posted a nice recipe too and I think sour cream would
make it "orangish"

Michael


It would indeed. Better than my thought of milk. Sounds good enough to give
it a try with some crema. I'll bet it would be good with breakfast burittos
and with my guacamole enchiladas that I usually just top with sour cream.

Marcella! This looks like it would be delicious! I will save it for a future
trial! Thanks!

6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 cup water
1 cup crema media ácida or American sour cream


Substituting American sour cream will make a far inferior sauce.
Spring for the Mexican stuff.

Salt and pepper to taste

You could also try doing everything exactly as above, but completely
omit the onion. I would.

In large skill, heat oil and cook tomatoes until blackened and softened,
about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, soak chiles in water for 15 minutes to
soften. Remove stems, seeds and membranes if desired. In food processor,
blend together tomatoes, chiles, onion, garlic, water and crema or sour
