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.

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