Are enchilada sauce and taco sauce the same?
Also asked, can you substitute taco sauce for enchilada sauce?
Consistency. While enchilada sauce is sometimes smoother than taco sauce, the consistency is really up to you. You need enough liquid so the tortillas in the enchiladas can absorb the sauce and so that sauce remains on top of the dish, but chunkiness gives the sauce a more interesting taste and texture.
Additionally, what can you substitute for enchilada sauce?
Mole, gravy, spaghetti sauce, cheese sauce, queso (cheese sauce with salsa or Rótel Tomatoes added), mushroom soup, or sour cream. Each will result in a tasty dish, although not necessarily a Mexican one.
In a saucepan over medium-high heat melt the butter until it becomes foamy. Add the flour and stir constantly for one minute. Stir in the canned enchilada sauce, chicken broth and salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until sauce has thickened.
