Who Knew?

Who knew enchilada sauce was so easy to make?? I am so accustomed to buying it in the can, and it is usually quite tasty. But now I'm in a country where if I want to buy Mexican condiments, I have to spend half of my paycheck. I used a recipe from the Food Network, and not only was it super tasty, but it was also very easy to make. You just make a roux with flour and oil, add and toast chili powder, and then add tomato paste, chicken stock, oregano, and cumin. I'm sure you can add other spices for different flavors as well. This sauce had a little kick that paired with the sweetness of the tomatoes. The enchiladas turned out great, making me proud that I can still pull off a Mexican meal with limited resources.
