Green Chile Sauce

This is a recipe that my mother had as long as I can remember, but I don’t know where she got it. It is very similar to the Basic Green Chile Sauce on the Focus New Mexico site. The original recipe was cooked in melted shortening, but I use olive oil for everything now, so I’m going to update the recipe.

Servings:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp flour
1 cup chopped green chile (roasted, peeled & seeded)
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (fresh or 15 oz can)
salt to taste

  1. Heat oil and saute the onion a few minutes, until softened.
  2. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the flour, cook two minutes.
  4. Slowly add the stock, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the chile & tomatoes. Cover and simmer 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water or stock if sauce gets too thick.
