Green chili sauce

Awhile back I promised you a recipe to use your fresh green chili peppers. I’m finally able to do that! Yay! This recipe uses your prepared green chili peppers and makes about 2 cups of sauce. Use on enchiladas, hamburgers or anything you like chili sauce on.

What you’ll need:

2 Tbl. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic
2 Tbl. onion, minced
1 Tbl. flour
1 c. water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. prepared green chilies, diced

Saute garlic and onion in the oil until tender. Blend in the flour with a wire whisk and stir until lightly browned. Add the water, salt and chilies and simmer 5 minutes. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Cost:
vegetable oil – $2.89
garlic cloves – $1.12
onion – $1.12
flour – $2.12/5 pound bag
chili peppers – free from your garden or $1.08
Total – $0.73 with free peppers or $1.81 with store bought
