Beautiful simple ingredients make this low carb enchilada sauce the best. The only real specialty ingredient I have in the sauce is the dried guajillo chillies. They add a great smokiness to the sauce. However, if you cannot locate them or do not want to order online you can substitute 1 tablespoon of chipotles in adobo sauce which is available where all the Mexican foods are in the supermarket.

  • 30 g butter
  • 1/2 tsp  xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 5 g onion powder
  • 5 g garlic powder
  • 2 guajillo dried chillies
  • 400 g tomatoes diced, fresh or tinned
  • 2 tbsp vegetable stock paste or 2 tsp of dried stock
  • 1 cup water

  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.

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.
