Delicious Tex-Mex Enchilada Sauce

Delicious Tex-Mex Enchilada Sauce
As a child we called it "Border Food" but eventually the fancy name "Tex-Mex" became the name for plates of rice, beans and some kind of gravy type food such as Enchiladas or Tamales. Tex-Mex is really good for quick meals on a work or school night.  This sauce is thicker like Enchilada sauce should be, with the molé sauce taste and the gravy texture that an enchilada sauce should have.  My family likes to eat it with chips and I have to fight to get enough to cover my enchiladas.  Hope your family loves it as much, too.
