Recently I’ve really been enjoying making my own sauces from scratch. I can control what goes in and adjust the flavors to my mood. However, when my local Harris Teeter had Frontera sauces on sale, I decided to check them out. I picked up the Green Chile Enchilada Sauce and was pleasantly surprised when I flipped it over.
The rather short list of ingredients include:
Tomato, tomatillo, water, poblano chiles, onion, milk cream, lime juice from concentrate, cilantro, garlic, salt, serrano peppers, evaporated cane juice, xanthan gum.
And to top it off, check out the nutritional info!
Green Chile Enchilada Sauce
I figured with stats like that, I couldn’t go wrong toat least give it shot!
Makes 4 servings
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 bell pepper, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
3 cups button mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 packet Frontera Kitchen Green Chile Enchilada Sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Mix all spices together in a small bowl and sprinkle on the chicken. Feel free to adjust the amount of spice to taste. Place the chicken on a sheet pan and pop it into the oven for about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken, and flipping half way through.
While your chicken is in the oven, slice your bell pepper and onion. Sautee on medium heat until tender, then add your sliced mushroom. Sautee for a few more minutes until the mushrooms are tender too.
By this time, your chicken should be just about cooked through. Remove from the oven and slice into about 1/4″ pieces. Toss your garlic into the pan along with the sliced chicken and your Frontera Green Chile Enchilada Sauce. Sautee just until heated through and serve!
My favorite way to serve this dish is with my quick and easy chunky guacamole.. recipe coming soon!
To say that we were pleased with this sauce would be an understatement. It tasted clean and fresh, definitely not something you expect from a packaged sauce! We also have a package of their Red Chile Enchilada Sauce and I cannot wait to give that a whirl!
With a product like this, I would 100% recommend purchasing not only their enchilada sauce, but any of their products. Next up? I’m thinking hot sauce and salsa!
Have you tried Frontera products? What is your favorite packaged sauce?
