- 2 T chile powder shopping list
- 2 cups chicken broth (or water) (I used a combination of both) shopping list
- For the cheese Enchiladas (makes 8) shopping list
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil shopping list
- 8 corn tortillas shopping list
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (can make it with Velveeta for extra melting oomph and good ol' Tex-Mex authenticity. I used monterey jack and cheddar as that's what I had) shopping list

How to make it
- Chili Gravy:
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Stir in the flour and continue stirring for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it makes a light brown roux. Add all the dry ingredients and continue to cook for 1 minute, constantly stirring and blending ingredients. This browns fast so don't over do or you will have a very burnt tasting gravy.
- Add chicken broth or water, mixing and stirring until the sauce thickens.
- Turn heat to low and let sauce simmer for 15 minutes or so. Add water to adjust the thickness. Pull off heat to cool.
- For the Cheese Enchiladas:
- Preheat the oven to 450.
- Pour the oil in a small skillet, and heat the tortillas one at a time quickly just to soften. Keep them wrapped in a cloth until all are heated.
- Pour 1/2 cup of chili gravy in a baking pan.
- Take a tortilla, put 1/4 cup of cheese and 1 tablespoon of onion in the center and roll it.
- Place rolled tortilla in baking dish, seam side down.
- Continue with remaining tortillas.
- Take remaining chili gravy, and pour it over the rolled tortillas.
- Sprinkle remaining cheese and onions on top.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving with refried bean and rice.
