Homemade Enchilada Sauce

I found this recipe years ago and tweaked it a little to fit our tastes.  It is so yummy and I actually prefer it over any store bought brand and it is SOOOO easy to make.  Sometimes I'm just feeling super lazy and I'll use a store bought can of sauce, but would prefer this one hands down anytime!!

It is also the perfect amount of sauce for Enchilada Casserole!

Enchilada Sauce
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
cheyenne pepper (optional)

Heat oil in a 2 quart saucepan.  Stir in the flour an chilli powder and cook for 1 minutes stirring constantly.  Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  (If you like a little kick to your enchilada sauce you can add some cheyenne pepper...just a dash will do it!)  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. 

Isn't that a piece of cake??!!  You'll never go back to store brands again!!
