    I have made homemade enchilada sauce before, but it was not like this!  My sister-in-law Jess sent me this recipe.  She asked her husband what her signature dish should be for a contribution for the blog and this was part of his vote (the enchiladas will come tomorrow!)   She said it is slightly different each time she makes it because she rarely measure, she adds what looks and tastes right.  I can sympathize, that is how I normally cook as well.  I tried it using the measurements she sent and it was delicious!!

Enchilada Sauce

Ingredients:

2 T vegetable oil
2 T flour
1 T chili powder
8 oz tomato sauce
1 1/2 cup water
1 T cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp salt
2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Cholula to taste
(all measurements are subject to taste, start with a little and add until you get your desired flavor)
  1. Heat a saucepan and oil over medium-high heat.  Stir in flour and chili powder. Reduce heat to medium and cook until lightly browned, stirring constantly.
  2. Add tomato sauce and water and stir well to combine.
  3. Add seasoning, tasting as your go. 
  4. Simmer for a few minutes until slightly thickened

I make enchiladas all the time, but I usually buy sauce. I'm going to give this a try. It sounds wonderful:-) Thanks for linking up and sharing with us at Funtastic Friday. Hope you join us again this week.

It is really easy to make! Plus that way you can customize the flavor a bit. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm so glad the measurements worked out! Wish we could have been there to taste it. Maybe one day I'll make it with this actual recipe to see what it's like. :)
