There are no tomato products in Traditional enchilada sauce. *Canned* enchilada sauce is even a worse addition. Add about 4 to 6 heaping tablespoons of mild chile powder (one Tbls per cup of water), some Better Than Bouillon chicken broth (no MSG), cumin and oregano, and chopped, sauted onions. This would be a worthy "enchilada" soup. Our Mexican family is appalled by what people think Mexican cooking is. Someone adds a jalapeno or other chile pepper and call it Mexican. Mexican cooking is simple and many people manage to turn it into chaos making it a bad representative of our culture. Since Mexico started planting garlic and tomatoes as cash crops, people want to put them in everything. That is not delicious, lovely traditional cooking.
