The first Green Chile sauce of the season

With the 2009 Johnsons's Chile Fest soon upon us I thought it was time to make the first batch of Green Chile Sauce of the season. Most chile heads just refer to it as Green Chile. I came upon this recipe from another chile head from , Joyce Benedict. Joyce and her husband Ken, own Great Plains Landscape and Design Co. a Garden Center/Landscape company in Beloit Kansas. Several years ago, Ken was telling me about Joyce's wonderful Green Chile, and shared the recipe. We have had it in our Green Chile Recipe book for several years and it continues to be my favorite Green Chile recipe.

Joyce's "Secret" Award-Winning Green Chile Sauce

1/2 to 1 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

1 1/2 cup chicken broth

2 cups Hatch Green Chile, roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Dash cumin (or your favorite seasoning)

Saute' onions in butter. Addd flour to make a paste. Stir in broth, chile, garlic and cumin.

Use this sauce to spice up hamburgers, brats, eggs, soups ... anything that needs a kick!

The 'Secret' part of the recipe has been out for several years now, and after making and enjoying this Green Chile, I am sure you will give an award as well.
