Homemade Enchilada Sauce

This recipe for enchilada sauce is pretty tasty and easy to make, too. Pour it over whatever meat-stuffed tortillas you like, top with shredded cheese and you’re done! Oh, you should bake them before you eat them… :o)

Bring 4 cups water to a boil. While water is coming to a boil, whisk together 2/3 cup cold water and a scant 2/3 cup flour until smooth.
