This is a nice all purpose sauce that can be used in numerous dishes. It is good for enchiladas, as a base for Posole or other Mexican/Southwestern dishes. Adding an equal amount of Mexican Crema or sour cream to the cold sauce makes a thick finishing glaze good for plate presentation. I used canned tomatillos as he fresh at my grocery store didn't look that great. If you can find fresh by all means use them instead. Be cautious if you add salt as the canned enchilada sauce has lots in it. The sauce may seem thin but this is by design. It can be thickened according to what you are making with it. The sauce freezes very well.
