This is my favorite enchilada sauce. It's easy, ingredients are always in my kitchen, and tastes great! It can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, depending on your needs.

A great start to get me to authentic enchiladas. I lost the recipe my friend from South Texas shared and started my hunt. This one is similar. Here are the changes I made. My family ate every bite, even my 14 month old twins and 4 year old. Heat the oil and whisk in 6 T flour. Cook until light brown. Stir in spices (more chili powder, less cumin, add garlic powder) then whisk in 2/3 the amount of liquid (I used stock and left out the vinegar.). I can't wait to make this again!
