AUTHENTIC ENCHILADA SAUCE
Great sauce and very authentic enchiladas. If you want a hotter sauce, just add some cayenne pepper when it's done. Ancho and pasilla chile peppers are dried chiles, and may be available at your grocery store, or a Mexican market.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place chile peppers on a cookie sheet and roast in the oven until slightly toasted. (Note: When you can smell them, they're done.)
- Remove from the oven and slit them open. Remove the seeds and veins, then put them in a bowl with boiling water to cover. Allow them to sit for 30 minutes, then remove them from the water, reserving the water. Scrape the pulp from the insides of the chile peppers and discard the skins. (Note: The skins will give the mixture a bitter flavor.) Return the pulp to the water and set aside for later.
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute the garlic and onion in the butter or margarine for 5 minutes, or until onion is tender. Add the flour and mix well. Add the stock, stirring until thickened, and then add the reserved chile pulp mixture. Finally, add the oregano and the cumin.
- In a blender or food processor, puree the mixture until smooth. Season with salt to taste.

- 1. In a low heat setting place sauce pan on burner. Add oil, chili powder, cumin, and garlic to pan and cook for 3 minutes. This will release the spice flavors.
- 2. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the pan and stir.
- 3. Boil for 5 minutes.
- 4. Lower heat and simmer. While simmering, make a rue with flour and water. Add Rue to desired sauce thickness. Simmer for an additional 7 minutes.
- 5. Remove from heat and pour over your prepared enchiladas.
- Add the enchilada sauce to a small saucepan. In a small bowl, combine the salt, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, and pepper. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the spice mixture to the enchilada sauce (reserve the remaining spice mix for the beef). Bring the sauce a simmer over medium heat; Remove from the heat and set aside.
- In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the beef and the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring often, until the beef is browned and crumbly, about 8 minutes. Stir in the green chiles and 1/2 cup of the warmed enchilada sauce; cook 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat, and let cool slightly.
- Place the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 30 seconds on high to soften. Leave the paper towel over top of them to keep them moist and pliable.
- Preheat the oven to 375°. Spoon 1/2 cup of the warmed enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Working with one tortilla at a time, spoon 1/2 cup of the beef mixture down the center of a tortilla; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Roll the tortilla up to enclose the filling, and place in the baking dish seam-side down. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling. Spoon the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Top with the remaining 1 cup cheese.
- Bake until the cheese is golden and bubbly and the tortillas are toasted, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes; top with red onion and cilantro just before serving with sour cream, if you like.
