Lasagna Rolls

Creamy Enchilada Sauce

  • Heat butter in a small saucepan until melted. Add flour. Whisk until smooth. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano and salt. Stir until well combined. (Mixture will be dry.) Slowly whisk in chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Add 1 cup sauce to cream cheese in a blender. (reserve remaining sauce for another use. Hint: it freezes!)
  • Blend until smooth.

Notes

I tried this with brown rice noodles, and the noodles fell apart after cooking and did not hold up to rolling.  If you are gluten free, please consider Mexican Lasagna Casserole as an alternative to this dish.
