    We had some leftover beer can chicken, so we decided to make enchiladas! I modified a recipe I found from chowhound for the chile gravy. These were the best enchiladas I've ever had!

    Here's a close up:

    Here's the recipe for the Chile Gravy:

    [font=&quot]Chile Gravy:[/font]

    • [font=&quot]5 whole [font=&quot]ancho chiles [/font][font=&quot]seeded and stemmed[/font][/font]
    • [font=&quot]3 cups vegetable broth[/font]
    • [font=&quot]1/4 medium white onion, coarsely chopped (about 1/3 cup)[/font]
    • [font=&quot]6 tablespoons vegetable oil[/font]
    • [font=&quot]4 medium cloves garlic, minced[/font]
    • [font=&quot]6 tablespoons all-purpose flour[/font]
    • [font=&quot]2 ½[font=&quot] teaspoons[/font][font=&quot] ground cumin[/font][/font]
    • [font=&quot]1 teaspoon dried [font=&quot]oregano[/font][/font]
    1. [font=&quot]Place [font=&quot]chiles[/font][font=&quot] in a small [/font][font=&quot]saucepan[/font][font=&quot] and cover with 1 1/2 cups of the vegetable broth. Bring to a [/font][font=&quot]boil [/font][font=&quot] over medium-high heat and cook until chiles have softened, about 5 minutes.[/font][/font]
    2. [font=&quot]Pour chile mixture (with cooking liquid) and onion in a blender, cover the lid with a kitchen towel, and blend on high until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth and blend to combine.[/font]
    3. [font=&quot]Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat until hot but not smoking, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until soft and tender but not browned, about 1 minute. Add [font=&quot]flour [/font][font=&quot]and cook, whisking constantly, until flour smells toasted but garlic remains pale in color, about 2 minutes more. [/font][/font]
    4. [font=&quot]Whisk in [font=&quot]cumin[/font][/font][font=&quot] and oregano, then slowly pour in chile mixture. Whisk until chile mixture is completely incorporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and season well with salt. Let cool, then refrigerate overnight and make enchiladas the next day.[/font]
