Enchilada Sauce

I was on the hunt for a good enchilada sauce recipe and came across one that was almost what I was looking for. A couple tweeks and it is perfect! No more canned sauce around here!! This stuff only takes about 10 minutes to make. The peanut butter sounds weird but trust me, it really helps bring out the flavor of the cumin and chili powder. For extra heat, use hot chili powder!

3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons of flour
1.5 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of oregano
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter
2 cups of vegetable broth or chicken broth
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Start by putting the flour and seasonings all together in a small bowl. Heat the oil in a small saucepan. When it's nice and hot add the flour and seasonings to make a roux. Cook for about 60 seconds to bring out the flavor of the spices. Add tomato paste, peanut butter and broth. Whisk well until lumps are gone. Bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from  heat and salt and pepper to taste and add apple cider vinegar.
