Enchilada Sauce

Contributor: Marian

2 Tbs. Vegetable oilseed
2 Tbs. all purpose flour
2 Tbs. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 cups water
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt

Heat oil in large 2 qt saucepan. Stirn in flour and chili powder, cook for 1 minute, NO MORE THAN THAT. Stir constantly for best results!

Add remaining ingredients and make sure the 'fried' chili powder and flour mixture isn't lumpy.

Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes.
