Easy Enchilada Sauce

1/2 cup butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
4 cups broth or bouillon
8 oz. tomato sauce

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Stir in flour to make a smooth paste.  Add spices and continue to stir until bubbly.
Whisk in broth and bring to a boil.  Cook and stir 1 minute, until thickened. Stir in tomato sauce.

Makes 5-6 cups, enough for (1 or 2*) 9×13 pan of enchiladas.

*Kim says it's enough for TWO pans of enchiladas but my husband likes a LOT of sauce.  You'll have to figure out what works for you!! :-)
