This was a hit! The only thing that I did different was used half cream cheese and half sour cream. I also added a bit of coriander and cheese to the sauce and about half the amount of cumin, you don't want too much of that!! Amazing great flavor!!

You can't go wrong with this recipe. Very flavorful! I used left over chicken instead of turkey.
I've made Texas Red Enchilada Sauce many times in the past and it is a winner.
Thanks for sharing your delicious recipes.
