New Mexico Enchilada Sauce Dry Mix

New Mexico Enchilada Sauce

Keep this on hand to make red enchilada sauce as you need it. It is so much better than the sauce in a can and much less expensive also!


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 ounces chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Store in an airtight container.

To use the mix:

2/3 cup dry mix
4 cups water

Cook together in saucepan over medium heat until well blended and thickened.

To make half as much, use 1/3 cup dry mix to 2 cups water. Cook as above.
