Directions

In a small bowl, mix together Canyon Road Red Enchilada Dry Sauce and 1/2 cup of the water until a smooth paste forms. Set aside. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. As butter melts, whisk in flour to form a roux. Continue to whisk and cook roux until it turns a light to medium brown color, about 5 min. Stir enchilada seasoning paste into roux and cook for 1 to 2 min. to toast the seasoning. Stir in remaining water and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, add vinegar, and simmer for 40 min., stirring occasionally.
