  1. Enchilada Sauce: In a medium saucepan heat butter, add flour, smoothing and stirring with a wooden spoon. Cook for 1 minute. Add chili powder, cumin and garlic powder and cook for 30 seconds. Slowly add chicken broth and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes. The sauce will thicken and smooth out. Add salt and adjust as desired. Sprinkle cheese over top of sauce and stir in until melted.

  5. Fill each tortilla with a large spoonful of meat mixture.
