Copy Cat Cafe Rio Green Enchilada Sauce

So I made some smothered Cafe Rio style burritos last night. I had seen this recipe for a copy cat Cafe Rio sauce over at Favorite Family Recipes and I figured it was definitely worth a try. Sure enough the sauce didn't disappoint. I think it has slightly more kick to it than the real deal, but it's a great at-home version. This makes enough to smother 3-4 large burritos.

1 small can diced green chilies
1 (7 oz.) can Embasa brand salsa verde
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt

Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan and mix well. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer for a minimum of 20 minutes. Spoon over burritos or enchiladas, yum!
