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.

Glad to find this recipe. My godmother made the best enchiladas for her daycare...just the right amount of spice with no tomato. This is a similar recipe in which you can tweek the spice. I halfed the recipe and reduced spices for my kids. I heated oil, wisked in flour to a light brown (like rue), added water and knorrr chicken buillion, omitted vinegar. Bring to a boil, reduced heat and let simmer for the 15 min and the sauce will thicken. Very good and easy.
