DIY Chicken Enchiladas

Inspiration came to me to develop this recipe while in the grocery store. I was unimpressed with the ingredients on cans of prepared enchilada sauce so I set to work on developing a flavorful homemade version. Now you can make your own easy, spicy sauce, and the base is simply a can of inexpensive tomato sauce.
