    • You can substitute the Red Enchilada sauce for the green, but the taste will change because the ingredients are different in those sauces. Green enchilada sauce is generally a mixture of green tomatillos and green chilies along with other ingredients such as spices, onions, garlic, and vinegar. Red enchilada sauce is typically made from a variety of red chilies, vinegar and other spices, onions, and garlic. Some "quick" versions of red enchilada sauce may actually use red tomato sauce or paste as a base. Depending on your taste preferences, red or green enchilada sauce can work well on a variety of different enchilada dishes.
