Mad Creations Best Ever Keto Enchilada Sauce is great to use with any variation of enchiladas.  It is so easy and you can keep the sauce in the fridge or freezer for further use. 

This enchilada sauce has been apart of my basics recipes for more years than I dare to count and now it is time to share it with you.  Don’t worry it is a super easy recipe that everyone can make and have handy for when a little bit of flavour is needed to brighten up any meal

How to make your own Keto Enchilada Sauce.

  1. First up you really do need to order yourself some Mexican chillies. Guajillos are a rich smokey, fruity chilli that forms the base in many Mexican dishes. There are several Mexican suppliers online that you can order from (for those of you in Australia).  You can substitute an Ancho or Pasilla chilli if that is something you have in the cupboard but others get online and order up. I always have a big bag handy as I love my Mexican flavours.
  2. Xanthan gum has been used in this recipe purely for a thickener. It can be substituted with a teaspoon of gelatin. There is only a slight thickening to this sauce. The consistency is similar to marinara sauce.
  3. This recipe works consistently well in both a Thermomix® and on the stove.
  4. I have used a stock paste, bone broth concentrate, and powdered stock as well in this recipe. You can also substitute fresh stick or bone broth.

A delicious sauce that can truly make a meal a wow meal.

Guajillo chillies are used often in Mexican sauces. They impart a beautiful smokey flavour and richness to the sauce. They are not particularly spicy, but more fruity and smokey.
Suitable for many Mexican dishes, pasta sauce, add to soups, use as a sauce on burgers or wraps, or a casserole or slow cooked meal.

  1. This is the kind of enchilada sauce that you will pour on everything.


  2. I just made this sauce and it is delicious. I had to substitute smoked paprika and a small amount of dried chillies because I didn’t have the Guajillo dried chillies. I could eat this by the spoonful. 😋 Megan how long would this keep in the fridge?

  3. Where do you buy the chillies from in Australia I tried to use the where to buy the ingredients but it didn’t work

    1. Gourmet ingredients stores, shops that stock Herbies, and/or Mexican suppliers. Try places like Grandmas Pantry, http://www.chillimojo.com, Essential Ingredient or Spice Wagon


      1. Thanks I found some in weigh n pay in Perth. I can’t wait to make the sauce. Feeling happy!
