New Mexico Green Chile Sauce

This basic, yet versatile sauce without the chicken can be used to create enchiladas, or pour over chimichangas or burritos.  Seafood, beef or beans can be substituted for the chicken.

Yield:  2 cups

1 tablespoon butter or lard
2/3 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons flour
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup (or more) chopped green chiles
1 cup cooked chopped chicken
1 large clove garlic, finely minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
Dash of ground comino (cumin)

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Sauté the onion until soft.  Stir in the flour.

2. Add the broth.  Then add chiles, garlic, salt and comino.

3. Simmer for 20 minutes; then use for making enchiladas.
