Texas Red Sauce....

I found this economical tasty way to make your own red sauce awhile back and have been wanting to share it with you! I finally got the chance! I don't have a picture right now but we are having these for supper tomorrow night so I will try to get one posted! Hope you enjoy! These are GOOD!!! :)

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

 5 teaspoons red chili powder

 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin

 2 teaspoons garlic powder

 6 ounces tomato paste

 2 1/4 cups water or half chicken broth

 salt and pepper


  1. Melt butter/margarine in a sauce pan.
  2. Make a roux by browning flour in melted butter/margarine.
  3. Add spices and tomato paste; stir until well blended into roux.
  4. Add water gradually, stirring constantly.
  5. Heat until boiling.
  6. Continue simmering and stirring until desired thickness is achieved.
  7. Taste every so often and adjust spices as needed.
  8. Once desired consistency and taste is reached, coat the bottom of a pan with the sauce, add freshly rolled enchiladas, then pour the remainder of the red sauce over enchiladas.
  9. Place pan in oven and cook until enchiladas are done.
