If I don't have enchilada sauce, what can I use as a substitute? Anyone have any ideas? I thought I had some and don't and no money right now to go get some. My plan was, corn tortillas on the bottom of a glass roasting pan, a layer of refried beans, a layer of shredded cheese and a can of diced green chilis, repeat and end up with a layer of corn tortillas. I wanted to pour enchilada sauce over each layer and the top, hmm! No enchilada sauce.
