    It's for a chili recipe. Do you think maybe taco sauce could be used instead? I've never used canned enchilada sauce, so I really don't know what it tastes like.

    I'm sure some will disagree with me but canned enchilada sauce is like thinned out salsa without the veggie bits in it. I've tried both green and red and they are both good but I'm sure taco sauce or even salsa can be substituted.

    Do you have any just plain chili seasoning? I would use that.

    I've got chili powder. Maybe I will use a little taco sauce and spice it up with a dash of chili powder. Thanks to you both for your replies. :)

    Hey, it's chili not rocket science! LOL

    ENCHILADA SAUCE (makes 3 cups)

    I've not yet tried this recipe but I got it off this bb. I think it sounds worth a try.

    Enchilada sauce

    2 T. cooking oil
    2 T. all-purpose flour
    2 T. chili powder
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    1 can (14 oz. chicken broth)
    1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. garlic powder

    Heat oil in large saucepan; stir in flour & chili powder. Cook for 1 minute then all remaining ingredients. Bring to boil & simmer for 10 min. Refrigerate extra.
