last modified: last month

Kathsgrdn asked me for, first, my Red Chile Sauce recipe and then my Green. Here’s that recipe:

Green Chile Sauce


2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup onions, chopped

1/4 cup flour

2 cups chopped green chile (canned will work)

2 cups chicken (or vegetable) broth

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1) In a medium saucepan, add the oil and heat it on medium until it’s hot. Add the onions and saute until tender.

2) Add your flour and cook until it’s really brown (which gives it it’s good flavor) while stirring constantly to make a roux.

3) Add the remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

*Makes 4 cups

* Here in New Mexico, we spoon green (or red) chile sauce over just about anything, from scrambled or over easy eggs, Huevos Rancheros, tamales, enchiladas, steak, warmed tortillas, nachos, rice, etc., etc.
