Taquitos with Sweet and Spicy Enchilada Dipping Sauce

sweet and spicy enchilada taquitos

Did you watch the Big Game on Sunday? I did (whether I liked it or not!) and of course had to use the occasion as an excuse to create and extra special dish to fill the bellies of all of our football fanatics. We had planned on having a party but it had to be cancelled at the last minute.  That was no reason not to make at least some of the yummy foods I had planned though!

I had seen recipes for the enchilada sauce that call for tomato sauce instead of puree but the Classico Heavy Tomato Puree really makes the recipe-it’s thick and intense and gives a bit of a sweet twist on your classic enchilada sauce-plus it’s 100% all natural, packed fresh with no preservatives which is very important to our family! (I found mine at Walmart!)
