Quick and easy homemade enchilada sauce that really improves over store bought. This is from Gimme Some Oven. I used this in enchilada soup, and it would also dress up any enchilada or even taco dish. This is a mild red sauce.
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
- 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 4 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. oregano
- 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and stir together over the heat for one minute. Stir in the remaining seasonings (chili powder through oregano). Then gradually add in the stock, whisking constantly to remove lumps. Reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until thick.
Use immediately or refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.
