REVIEW: recipe rating
A note to the commenter on the chili powder taste. I use cumin spice as a complement to the chili power, which gives the sauce a nice chili flavor. With cumin as a complement, one can increase the chili powder in the recipe.

I use chicken broth with some tomato paste blended in for the liquid. Gives even more nice flavor to the sauce.

My family loves this sauce. I make no alterations to the recipe and it turns out great every time. The flavor is perfect and rivals any store-bought enchilada sauce.

Sauce had too much of a chile powder taste.

COMMENT:
I am not an expert on enchilada sauce, but this was very good in my opinion. Tasty, homemade and easy gets an A+ in my book!

HE-LO

COMMENT:
VERY Important: We replaced flour for cornstarch - MUST mix with small amount of sauce before adding to pan! Flour just gets clumpy when wet

This recipe was quick, easy, and delicious. It was nice to be able to make a wonderful sauce with ingredients I had on hand. Plus it was much better than what I get out of a can.
