Enchilada Sauce

Burritos with Enchilada -ready for Oven
A ouple of years ago when i was planning on burritos for dinner, the market was out of the canned stuff one day, and thank goodness. it forced me to make my own which is far superior, and a lot less expensive. A 29 oz can of Puree is only about $1.50, half the cost of the "Authentic" sauce.

1 29 oz can Tomato Puree
3+ tbsp Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Onion finely diced
1 tbsp Dad's Rub
2-3 Chipotle Peppers finely diced
   or 2-3 tbsp Chipotle Hot Sauce
1+ tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp Olive oil
Small dash of ground cinnamon, and/or allspice, Very Easy to overpower.

Burritos w Enchilada Sauce Topped with Pico Served w Rice
Saute the onion in the olive oil.over medium low heat. The longer you let it go toward fully caramelized, the more delicious it gets. If you have the time, take the onions all the way. Except peppers or hot sauce, add everything else and whisk together, continuing medium low heat to simmer. Add the peppers or hot sauce 1 at a time to control heat. You may like your saucece more tart or more sweet as well, which explains the "+" You can always add to your preference. Simmer a few minutes to bring the flavors together.

Dad's Rub is just my own little spice blend that i use for grilling and sauces and all sorts of other places.

It is simply
2 parts Chili Powder- the "Hot" Mexican on the market shelves usually isn't too spicy.
1 part each
- Black Pepper
-Cayenne Pepper
-Garlic Powder
-Dry Mustard Powder

Please note there is no salt in this rub. I prefer to salt to taste
