    I’ve made this several times now, and love it! Though I’m wondering what the best flour alternative would be to make this gluten free?

    This was awesome!Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Can this sauce be frozen

  4. 5 stars
    I made this sauce for chimichangas along with a pineapple salsa and my family went insane! Definitely a new favorite! Thank you!

  5. 5 stars
    Adaptaptable to dairy free and excellent sauce!
    I substituted plain almondmilk yogurt for sour cream and almondmilk cream cheese with perfect results.

  6. I can’t wait to make it. Any suggestions for flour substitute as I have one that can’t eat gluten. Do you think it will work if I do less flour or a different kind or leave it out? Thanks

    • Hi Tracy! You can use corn starch mixed with cold water instead of flour, hope this helps. I haven’t tried it yet, but I would use 2 teaspoons of corn starch with 2 teaspoon of cold water, mix and add it to the sauce and see if you want to add more to thicken the sauce. Hope this is helpful!

    I love this sauce! Cream cheese makes it delicious. My husband is not the biggest fan of cream cheese and can always tell when I “sneak” it in. Any suggestions for masking the taste or substitutes?

  8. Hi, i tried it and it’s very tasty 😋 Was wondering for how long can I keep it in the fridge ?
    Thanks for your answer 🙂

  9. Have you ever used greek yogurt to sub the sour cream? Just trying to make it a bit lighter.

    I haven’t tried the white sauce yet, but I plan to. My family loves chicken and beef chimichangas. I add onions and peppers in the beef with every thing else the same. I love cilantro! However, the stems have much flavor in them so they are chopped up with the leaves. Never thrown away. Thanks for your great recipes!

    I made this with vegan sour cream, vegan butter, and vegan cream cheese, because my hubby is very allergic to dairy. It was fantastic! It was so creamy and smooth. I will use this a lot. I held back a lot on the hot sauce, and it was still great!

  12. 5 stars
    Cream cheese is really hard on my stomach. I substituted with ranch and still a super tasty sauce! I use this recipe all the time. Thanks!

    Great recipe, also wondering if this sauce can be frozen.

    • Hi Kathy! Thank you for your recipe review, I haven’t froze this sauce before, not sure how it will look after being frozen. If you try it please let me know how you liked it! Thank you!

  14. This sauce is Amazing!!! My family loved the chimichangas. I’m making the enchiladas today!

      Sauce was simple to make and great in the chimichangas. I am curious if you can freeze the leftover or about other recipes to use it in.
