We enjoy this Enchilada Sauce so much that it is also used on some of our egg recipes and left-overs.

 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
 1 tablespoon flour
 1/4 cup chili powder
 2 cups chicken stock
 10 ounces tomato paste
 1 teaspoon dried oregano
 1 teaspoon ground cumin
 1/2 teaspoon salt

In a medium saucepan heat oil, add flour, smoothing and stirring with a wooden spoon. Cook for 1 minute. Add chili powder and cook for 30 seconds. Add stock, tomato paste, oregano, and cumin. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes. The sauce will thicken and smooth out. Adjust the seasonings. Serve atop your favorite enchiladas.
