Enchilada Sauce

We made enchiladas the other night. But I wanted to share with all our Mexican Food Lovers this yummy Enchilada Sauce recipe that came from my grandma. Let us know if you tried it out!

Enchilada Sauce
 2 Tbs Shortening
3 Tbs Flour
2 cans Tomato Sauce
2 cans Water
1/2 tsp. Vinegar
1/2 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
1 1/2 - 2 Tbs Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin
(spices according to taste)

Melt shortening in a pot, add the flour, mix well. Then add the tomato sauce to the pot. Use the tomato sauce cans to measure the water, add water to pot. Mix well and cook until thickened. Add other spices. Let simmer, the longer the better. 

This will make almost a quart of sauce. If you are making a large batch of enchiladas remember to double. You can store the leftovers in a quart glass jar in the fridge up to a week. Dont forget to come back and see a yummy Breakfast meal that I made with this enchilada sauce.
