Enchilada Sauce

This recipe is a special request by sturdy but volatile Angela who until last night believed enchilada sauce only came from cans. Since my sisters & I learned how to whip this up sans-recipe, the measurements are my best guess so tweak it however you like!

2 T oil (any kind)
1 t granulated garlic (I like to use 2 pressed cloves of garlic. Add fresh garlic with the flour)
1 t beef bouillon
1/4 c flour
1/4 c chili powder
2 c water or broth (any flavor)

  1. Heat garlic & bouillon in oil until very hot.
  2. Add flour & stir constantly until browned.
  3. Mix in chili powder & brown just until incorporated.
  4. Pour in water or broth & whisk well until no lumps remain.
  5. Simmer until it reaches your desired thickness (5-10 minutes).
