I have to share!


I wouldn't be a good friend or fellow blogger if I didn't share with you my mother's homemade recipe for enchilada sauce. It is fantastic! Once you try this recipe you will not go back to the stuff in the can. We also use t on top of enchiritos. Your children will like this because you control the spice level. In a sauce pan whisk together 1/4 cup vegetable oil and 2 Tablespoon flour once these are well incorporated add 1 8oz can of tomato sauce, 1 Table spoon chili powder or more if you like it spicy, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon cumin and two cups of broth of your choice. Bring to a simmer and once the sauce has thickened remove from the heat.  No go try this recipe.  I promise you will love it!
