in a small bowl or coffee mug, combine flour and COLD water and whisk till smooth.

Turn heat up a bit on sauce, bring it to a rolling boil, add flour mixture slowly while whisking non stop to keep from lumping. Reduce heat back down to medium low as you whisk for one minute. Remove from heat and your sauce is thickened and done.

  • I appreciate an enchilada sauce without tomato sauce or paste so it was good to find this recipe - and the sauce is great! - 6/5/10
