Red Enchilada Sauce

I've always bought the canned enchilada sauce in the past so I was excited to find a recipe for it. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make and SO much better flavor! Use it to top your favorite enchiladas before baking.

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 tbsp chili powder
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups water

Add the oil, flour, and chili powder to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the ingredients together; cook until it begins to bubble, then continue to cook and whisk for 1 minute.

Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk until smooth. Allow it to come to a simmer, which will let it thicken slightly. Remove from heat.
