Cheesy Enchilada Sauce

My good friend and I share a love of Mexican food.  We would find every excuse in the world to go out to lunch and have Mexican food almost all the time.  I miss her so I was excited when she sent me this recipe.  It is similar to a the one used at a local restaurant we used to go to.  It is so flavorful and oh so DELICIOUS!! It was the perfect sauce for enchildas and a huge hit with the whole family!!
Cheesy Enchilada Sauce
2 Tablespoons flour
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons chili powder
1 cup milk
1 cup beef broth
1/3 cup salsa
1/8 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
6 oz. velveeta cheese, cubed
 Cook flour and garlic in veg. oil over low heat stirring constantly, until flour is lightly browned. Stir in chili powder. Gradually add milk, broth, salsa, oregano, and cumin. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Add velveeta cheese and stir until melted.
Pour a small amount in the bottom of your dish and over top of your prepared enchiladas.  This time I made mine with shredded beef, onions, pinto beans, tomatoes and cheese.  They were delicious!!
Thanks Katie for such an incredible recipe!!


  1. Looks great Tiffanee! A little different than the one I have which doesn't call for cheese-enjoy:@)

  2. This has got to be a hit with those kids who seem to hate everything else! I think there are lots of moms out there looking for something other than pizza, mac'n'cheese, and hot dogs!

  3. I love, love Mexican. I am sure keeping this Tiffanee!
