From what I know, many traditional enchilada sauces are made without any tomatoes. Canned Las Palmas enchilada sauce is an example although it is too high in sodium. I make my own sauce with dried chiles.

I probably would have rated the recipe as written lower than this. We modified the recipe based on other reviewer comments, our preferences, and what my diet would allow. Our version was slightly higher in potassium. We used a huge glove of garlic instead of garlic powder. We omitted the salt. We used 2 scant teaspoons of chili powder and added 1 teaspoon of cumin. We could probably increase the chili powder and cumin more.

This one really missed the mark for us. Something was definitely missing, so I looked up other enchilada sauce recipes and they all call for cumin. I will add some next time. Also, the enchiladas were very dry.

Im confused I thought tomatoes were not allowed on the menu Moderator comment: It's all about balance and portion size. If your potassium is well controlled you can include small amounts of tomato and tomato products on a low potassium diet.1/4 cup of this sauce is equal to having one serving of vegetables so you would count this as one of the vegetable choices in your meal plan.

Bore no resemblance to any enchilada sauce I've ever had. All I could taste were tomatoes. Did not make enough to adequately cover the chicken enchiladas. Would not recommend.

hi I cant have any Red sauce or tomatoes what Can I use instead ? Moderator comment: Check out the Sauces and Seasoning recipes on DaVita.com. You could make a white sauce with the White Gravy recipe or try Chimichurri Sauce or one of the Salsa recipes as a replacement for the red sauce.

Used tomatillos instead of tomatoes. Rich and flavorful sauce. Moderator comment: tomatillos are a bit higher in potassium but still acceptable. This substitution will add about 40 mg potassium per 1/4 cup serving.
