Green Enchilada Sauce

A can of store-bought enchilada sauce is convenient, but in my opinion it can be a little pricey unless it’s on a good sale.  This recipe is inexpensive, fast and simple, and makes more than 2 cups.  The only ingredient you need to remember is a can of diced green chiles; everything else is a basic item that should be in most kitchens.  I store green chiles in my food storage (purchased in bulk on sale), so this is a recipe I can make any time.  It makes more than a standard can of enchilada sauce and costs me less than a dollar.

Simple Green Enchilada Sauce In a medium saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter.
Stir in 1/4 cup flour and mix until bubbly.

Slowly add 2 cups water and 2 tsp. chicken bullion.
Stir in 1 small can diced green chiles.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  When sauce begins to thicken, remove from heat.  Use with any recipe that calls for green enchilada sauce.
