Notes

Tips to make the Best Enchilada Sauce:

Spice level:  The spice Level of the enchilada sauce can be adjusted as per your preference.  If you would like to get more spicy, you may add pepper powder as well.

Roux: Once you add the flour, whisk quickly to avoid any lumps and the flour should be stirred for 1 minute to remove the raw flavours.

Seasoning: Once you add the seasonings, keep in the low flame . The spices might brown quickly.

Vegetable stock/ Chicken Stock: Th chicken stocks has more flavours than the vegetable stock, I had vegetable stock cubes so I have added it.

Tomato Puree: Once you add the tomato puree, cover with the lid and cook because the tomato puree tends to spills out!
