TexMex Cheese & Onion Enchiladas w/Chili Gravy

TexMex Cheese & Onion Enchiladas w/Chili Gravy

Introduction

Growing up in Texas I always loved enchiladas. When I moved away I found that the enchiladas were different. Some places even put tomato sauce over them :-|. This gravy recipe is taken from one by Robb Walsh and only slightly altered to try to remove some of the oil. I hope you enjoy as much as we do. Growing up in Texas I always loved enchiladas.
