Mexican Texas Red Enchilada Sauce Recipe


5 teaspoons red chili powder
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
2 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons flour
6 ounces tomato paste
salt and pepper


Melt butter/margarine in a sauce pan. Make a roux by browning flour in melted butter/margarine. Add spices and tomato paste; stir until well blended into roux. Add water gradually, stirring constantly. Heat until boiling. Continue simmering and stirring until desired thickness is achieved. Taste every so often and adjust spices as needed. Once desired consistency and taste is reached, coat the bottom of a pan with the sauce, add freshly rolled enchiladas, then pour the remainder of the red sauce over enchiladas. Place pan in oven and cook until enchiladas are done.
