Enchilada sauce

I have been searching through some low carb Mexican recipes, and I noticed many of them just say enchilada sauce. I have seen at least 2 types of this sauce, red and green. What would you say would be the default when a recipe says enchilada sauce?

I think red if not specified, but it would depend on the other ingredients. For instance most lc chicken enchiladas recipes I've seen called for green.

This is the recipe I found:

Low Carb Enchilada Pie

Yields: 8 Servings

Ingredients

For the Crust:
• 2 oz cream cheese
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning
• 1 cup Mexican Blend cheese
For the enchilada filling:
• 1 1/2 pound ground beef
• 3 tablespoon taco seasoning
• 8 oz Rotel tomatoes
• 1 1/2 cup enchilada sauce
• 1 cup Mexican Blend cheese


Instructions
Preheat oven to 350
Mix crust ingredients together and pour into a 9x13 dish sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake crust for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
Brown hamburger meat and add all remaining enchilada filings except 1 cup cheese.
Pour enchilada filling over baked crust.
Top with remaining cheese
Bake for an additional 20 minutes until bubbly.

Either would work in that recipe.

The green tastes like green chilies.

The red tastes more like chili powder.

The green chili kind is great with chicken casseroles too.

I'm from Southern Calif. and for that recipe I would use red. It might be regional.

I'm sure most people here do homemade, but anyone have a store brand they deem acceptable?

I bought some Frontera (I think that's the name). It's from Rick Bayless (of Mexican cuisine fame). Delicious and comes in a pouch. I got it at Target. I don't remember the exact carb count, but it was low.

I'll see if I can look it up.

eta: It's 1 net carb per two tablespoon.

I agree that either would work with that recipe, depending on personal preference.

I love the La Victoria brand. I used to use Las Palmas exclusively but got some LV on sale for a price I couldn't refuse and gee - found out I liked it better!

Why, thank ye kindly! I'm looking at the ingredients for a few different brands...should I expected most of them to contain sugar/cane juice/food starch? Probably just tiny amounts..
