15 Scrumptious Dishes Made with Enchilada Sauce

Enchilada sauce can be used for so many other dishes besides enchiladas. In the following 15 scrumptious dishes made with enchilada sauce, I have featured everything from soups, dips, salads, and pizza to several different enchilada recipes. I didn’t find a dessert made with it, but I probably just didn’t look hard enough.

These recipes show how creative one can be using this same ingredient. One of the recipes is for a grilled pizza, another is for pulled pork salad, and another one is for an enchilada puff you can eat with your fingers.

One of the recipes I have in the round-up is my homemade enchilada sauce recipe. I use it so frequently in dishes for my family that I keep a jar handy in my refrigerator. I am always thinking of new ways to use this in my recipes. My family prefers this to the canned sauce.
