A word about chili powder: The most-recommended chili powder in Texas is Gebhardt's, and for good reason. Lately, I have started trying chili powders for sale in the bulk sections of the major H-E-B and Central Market grocery stores with great results. For the enchiladas in the recipe photograph, I used their "San Antonio"chili powder, which is darker in color and has a taste of cumin. Of course, you can always get your hands on some dried chiles pasillas and make your own chili powder. Behold the extraordinary powder for Tex-Mex enchiladas!
Other enchilada sauces to pour over cheese enchiladas are Chile con Carne Sauce, Tomatillo Sauce, Ranchero Sauce, Chipotle Sauce and Tequila Cream Sauce. See, also, our slighty more complex, but incredibly good, recipe for chili gravy. Not so quick, but in a class by itself.
And remember this: Buy a product called "chili powder" -- not cayenne, not crushed red pepper, not ground red pepper.
