This 5 Minute Blender Enchilada Sauce is quick, easy, and full of vegetables! Healthy, easy, homemade enchilada sauce. Enjoy!


Units Scale
  • 1 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons taco or Southwestern seasoning
  • half an onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste)


  1. Blend everything together.
  2. Enjoy! 



For extra flavor and depth, simmer it all together for a while, maybe 15-30 minutes. But you can use it right out of the blender, too.

Freezes just fine!

Nutrition is for half a cup (1/8th of the recipe).

A previous version of this recipe used 28 ounces of water (refilling the can of tomatoes once), but due to reader feedback and our own re-testing, we’ve changed it to 1 cup of water.
