Internet Enchilada Sauce
Davis - Oakland, CA, USA
This creation was made because we were out of our usual brand name
enchilada sauce. However, I dare say it is actually more tasty and
healthier than the regular store-bought canned product. Especially
with the vegies being Farmers market ones.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and
