      I will never buy enchilada sauce again! I found this recipe online and it is absolutely delicious!

      2 T vegetable oil
      2 T flour
      4 T chile powder
      1/2 T cumin (or more if you like it)
      2 C chicken stock
      1 T dried oregano

      Heat oil in small saucepan on medium low. Add flour and cook to a thin roux. Add chile powder and cumin. I also like to throw in a little chipotle powder and smoked paprika but it’s just optional. Whisk until smooth and then add the chicken stock in a steady stream, whisking until smooth. Add the oregano and some salt to taste and cook on a low simmer for 10 minutes. The sauce thickens and deepens in color. Use for enchiladas or - whatever!

        • I’m going to use this for chile colorado burritos next time. This sauce is so good I’d just pour it over white rice! maybe even in an omelette - that would be good.

        • I’m not sure but I know it’s a red sauce and chunks of tender steak wrapped up in a large flour tortilla. I used to order them in California from a little hole in the wall Mexican drive through - the best Mexican food ever!! When I made this sauce yesterday it immediately reminded me of them.  

          I had to make ice cream this morning for our granddaughter’s birthday party and had lots of egg whites left over. I made a crustless quiche with them and contemplating drizzling some of that sauce over it.

        • That sounds good, I have been following Dr. D‘Adamo weight loss plan which works through a person’s blood type and have lost weight, so anything egg white is a winner in my book.heart

        • I cooked some shrimp in a skillet last night, put it over rice, and drizzled some of the sauce on top. I brought some left over enchiladas to a friend of mine yesterday while she was at work. She tasted the sauce and ended up eating the whole container of enchiladas at 9:30 in the morning! This stuff is gooood!!!estatic

        • OMG!!! HOw did I never see this before???  Yummy!  Must must try this.  I’ve got corn tortillas in the frig for making enchiladas, which are one of my favorite foods.

          The only thing I would do differently is heat the herbs in the oil before adding the flour.  I do that for my black bean soup and there is something about heating in that oil that just releases the flavors so much better.
