This Green Enchilada Sauce is hands down my favorite! I love to garden and each summer I plant a couple tomatillo plants, just so I can make a few batches of this recipe to bottle and have to use all year long!

Before I developed this recipe, I used to just freeze my tomatillos and make it fresh when I needed it. But, I hated using all that freezer room! So, years ago, I had a friend come over and we changed the recipe, so that I could bottle it! I have made it a few years now and it says good all-year-long and the flavor and texture holds up perfect!

HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE ENCHILADA SAUCE LAST?

After you’ve made it fresh, it can last in your refrigerator for one week. If you want to put it in a airtight plastic container or ziplock bag, you can freeze it for up to three months.

If you’re wanting it to last long term, I suggest following my instructions by bottling it using the hot bath method. Once bottled, it can last up to a year.
