Original Chili Gravy
Recipe copyright © 2012 Robb Walsh
- 1/4 cup lard or vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp Mexican oregano
- 2 cups chicken broth
In a skillet, heat the lard over medium-high heat.
Add the flour and stir constantly for 3 - 4 minutes until you have a light brown roux.
Add the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and Mexican oregano. Stir constantly for 1 minute to blend everything completely.
Add the chicken broth and stir until everything is blended thoroughly. Stir frequently until the mixture reaches a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer for 15 minutes.
If the mixture becomes too thick, add enough water to return it to gravy consistency.
