The original recipe included wheat flour, but this recipe is gluten free. This Gf-Zing! recipe produces 2 cups of finished enchilada sauce.
1/2 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup gluten free chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup tomato puree
1 cup water or stock
Fry the onion and garlic gently in oil until they are wilted. Add the seasonings and stir. Add the tomato and stock and simmer 10 minutes.
Be sure to use all gluten free ingredients, including the spices, canned tomato product and stock. As of December 15, 2005, the McCormick brand states on their website: “When a product that contains gluten is formulated, we take precautions to ensure the source of gluten is declared on our label in the ingredient statement.” This makes the McCormick brand of spices very attractive to the gluten-free community. The DelMonte website makes similar statements about their tomato products. “The list below includes products that, to the best of our knowledge, do not contain wheat, oats, rye or barley/malt ingredients. The list may change or not be complete due to formula changes or new product introductions. Please read the ingredient statement on the label for the most current information.”
Note: it is important to check with the manufacturer and read labels to see if policies or ingredients have changed.
