    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!

      I have been looking for an enchilada sauce without tomato for years. One like our favorite Mexican restaurant. I found it. I made a few changes---I added 4 reduced sodium chicken bouillion cubes and a little garlic powder. I will add more flour next time, it's a little thin. And I made it one evening and served the next day and the flavor had improved greatly. Really a good sauce.
