JoAnne's notes for this recipe:
This recipe was given to me by a friend long time ago. I make this often, when I'm asked to make enchiladas. This can be for any type of enchiladas. Easy and taste much better than any canned green chili you buy in the store.

Place 4 cups water into 4 quart sauce pan, add beef bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil.
In small sauce pan add margerine, melt and then add flour and mix to a rouge. Whisk into water mixture. Add green chili, stirr well. Add seasonings.
Sir well over medium heat until sauce thickens.
Special Note: Do not use real butter, as it will give the sauce a completely different taste, that you are not going to want.
This is great on any type of green chili sauced recipes. I use if mainly on enchiladas.

I like the idea of this sauce because it has ingredients I have in my pantry. However, it seemed a little thin to me once I made it, so I doubled the roux and added a 3rd can of chilies. Next time I make it (and I will make it again!) I will leave out the salt as there was enough salt in the bullion or I may just make it with low sodium beef stock. All in all, it's a good sauce and worked well in the Shrimp Enchiladas Verde I made for dinner. Thanks!

Thanks for your comments on the green chili sauce. Yes, everytime I make this for any of my family or guest, they give comments on how they like it. So thanks for your comments.
Yes, I probably should have mentioned for those who need low salt, to use low sodium stock.
