Gluten Free Homemade Enchilada Sauce

  • Author: Elaine VanVleck
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: approximately 4.5 cups 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


This easy recipe for gluten free homemade enchilada sauce is made in the blender with tomato sauce. It's simple to make your own enchilada sauce from scratch. I have a yummy recipe for skillet enchiladas to go with this sauce.



1 cup Chicken Broth
1 - 29 ounce can Tomato Sauce
2 Tbsp. Chipotle Chilis in Adobo Sauce
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper


In a blender, food processor or using an immersion blender blend the ingredients until they are smooth and there aren't any chunks of chipotle peppers left. 

Use this sauce in my Gluten Free Enchilada Skillet or any other enchilada recipe.


To adjust the spiciness of this recipe you can add less chipotle peppers.
