Notes

Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Alternatively, you could also freeze this sauce for a few months.
If you do not have any tomato paste you can use some tomato sauce, or you can even blend up canned tomatoes to make a sauce, and reduce the amount of broth.
To make your enchilada sauce spicier, add some green chilis, salsa, and or extra spices. You can even finely dice a hot pepper to add into the sauce to add a nice kick to it.
