  4. In small saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour and whisk until smooth.

  9. Pour sauce over enchiladas, spreading to edges.
  10. Top with remaining cheese (or more if you like it gooey.).
  11. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly.
