Other ingredients for a Mexican cuisine night

Frontera Green Chile Enchilada Sauce is a perfect addition to any enchilada recipe, but sometimes a Mexican inspired menu calls for a bit more. There are numerous recipes that can complete a meal, and plenty of great organic, non-gmo ingredients that can be used. Here are some of the best options for planning a delicious Mexican themed menu at home.

Eden Foods Organic Black Beans (2-Pack)

Black beans are an integral part of Mexican cuisine. From side dishes, to burritos, to being the star player in vegetarian enchiladas, these black beans are a healthy and nutritious option.

Frontera Red Chile Enchilada Sauce

The unmistakable roasted tomatillo flavors of Frontera Green Chile Enchilada Sauce is a true classic, but the red version of enchilada sauce from Frontera is also mouthwatering. Making two types of enchiladas with these sauces is a great way to give the family the best of both worlds.

Frontera Classic Fajita Skillet Sauce

Whether it's used for fajitas or to add chipotle and lime flavor to enchiladas, this skillet sauce is a great way to bring big taste to meats or veggies.

Frontera Texas Original Taco Skillet Sauce

Like the fajita sauce above, this sauce is packed with flavor and perfect for seasoning taco filling, or even enchilada filling. Whether on black beans, chicken, or ground beef, it’s the easiest way to get a fiery, smoky taste that Mexican cuisine calls for.

Amy’s Organic Traditional Refried Beans (2-Pack)

This quintessential Mexican side dish brings high levels of nutrition and taste. Amy’s are completely organic and vegan friendly, and serve as a great base for layered dips.

Lundberg Farms Organic Whole Grain Spanish Rice

Another great side that complements enchiladas perfectly is Spanish rice. Filled with nutrition from the whole grain rice and added tomatoes for a rich, delicious base, this is worth adding to any plate.

Garden of Eatin’ Blue Corn Tortilla Chips

No Mexican dinner is complete without tortilla chips. These bring an upscale restaurant feel to the dinner table and are great as an appetizer with salsa or as a base for nachos.

Frontera Tomatillo Salsa

Enchiladas Verde pairs perfectly with chips and salsa, but when it’s tomatillo salsa like this, prepare for flavor that’s tangy with just the right amount of heat.

Yummy!

Very tasty sauce. Buy some, already.

- Larry

My new fav

I've used Hatch for a long time but this is my new fav. I use it for Mexican zucchini boats and crab enchiladas. It has a fresh flavor and adds to both dishes.

- Cathy

Excellent Meal

This is so delicious and easy to make.
I must admit I put meat into my tortillas. I've done chicken, or ground beef. Follow the rest of the directions and a delicious meal in minutes.

- Martha

My favorite Thrive Market food purchase!

Addictive! Fresh, zesty taste. Quick easy evening entree. This little package makes four tasty enchiladas enough for a couple. I order multiple packages with every Thrive box now.

- Betty

Yummy!

This on top of Paleo wraps with cheese - divine!!!!!

Green Chile Enchilada Sauce

This is my favorite sauce for enchiladas.

- Helen

Green enchilada sauce

Best I've ever tried.use
It weekly

- Teresa

groovy

bought this at the grocer. I believe the price is nominally cheaper here.
I purchased this because I do not have the ingredients as readily as other sauces and it turned out fantastic. I'm not sure how natural or earth friendly the product is though.

I used it to replace water when cooking rice. THE.BOMB.

- Jennifer

Green Chile Enchilada Sauce

I tried this for the first time over my chicken enchilada's and it was delicious. Sometimes sauces are a hit or miss. This one's a hit.

- Nothinfornothin

Easy and delicious!

I just made simple cheese enchiladas the first time and it was delicious! Reminded me of a favorite green sauce from the past. Can't wait for my next order and to use this with different recipes!

- Donna

Great to add to Frontier Soup Mix

I added this to the Frontier Tortilla Soup mix and it added delicious flavor.

- Lyn

*Outstanding*

This is the best green Chile that I have ever tasted and I'm an old lady that has loved Mexican food most of my life. I took 2 chicken breast halves, breaded and browned them in coconut oil, put them in a casserole dish, dumped the green chili on then topped with mozzarella cheese & diced onions and baked them until the cheese browned and the chicken finished cooking. So delicious! Tonight it's green chili turkey enchiladas.

- Jeanne

So good!!!

I like to make my own green chile enchilada sauce every year but this has quickly become a new staple in my pantry for when I've run out of my homemade or don't have time to defrost. Wonderful flavor, no funky ingredients, and a new favorite of mine!

- Rachel

Delicious

This is so much better than the preservative laden grocery store enchilada sauce. It's so good and the pouch is just enough for a meal for 2. I've also used it to simmer chicken in and that turned out great. Perfect thing to keep in the pantry for a quick meal.

- Christina

Great enchiladas

I've always preferred green chile enchiladas, and this sauce is organic and pure and tastes a lot like the ones I get at my favorite Tex Mex joint. I like the fact that it's got a nice spicy kick to it, but that it doesn't overwhelm the flavor. This is a really good sauce that saves me time whenever I'm making my home made enchiladas.

- Tammy Phelps

Makes My Life Easier

This has made my Friday-themed dinners so much easier for the family. The kids get so excited for Mexican night, but honestly, Fridays are hard days at work. I love being able to use this sauce and avoid having to make a home-made enchilada sauce. Thrive has the best price I've seen so far too. It's over $3 cheaper than I've been buying it for at other online retailers. This is easily going to make my Thrive membership worth it.

- Helga Olsen

Dinner in a Pinch

I love my enchilada recipe and so does my family. But sometimes it is just easier and less time consuming to use a pre-made sauce. It really simplifies things. I have tried other sauces, but this was the first that tasted true to fresh enchiladas and was really very good. I use this when I need to make dinner in a pinch and it works out wonderfully. My kids and husband love this sauce and I am so happy I found it!

- Sonja

Delicious!

I found this sauce at the local health food store and it is way cheaper on here! It is very mild and great for my little ones. Gluten and preservative free. It also saves a ton of prep time rather than making the sauce from scratch but tastes nearly as perfect!

- Santos
