      In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium low heat. Stir in flour until blended and light brown in color. Slowly pour in broth and whisk to make smooth gravy. Add chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Pour gravy into a medium size bowl in which to dip tortillas.

      Wow, the roux really is the secret to a great enchilada casserole! Corn tortillas work as well as flour tortillas, and I've even swapped out the red sauce with mole sauce. Tasty!

      This is a definite do again! The flavor was fantastic!! In the future, I will have the "gravy" pre made as this step took the longest while browning the meat. Also, I used flour tortillas as I like the flavor much better than corn tortillas. All in all, a winner. Thank you for sharing!!
