JoAnne's Story

This recipe was given to me by a friend long time ago. I make this often, when I'm asked to make enchiladas. This can be for any type of enchiladas. Easy and taste much better than any canned green chili you buy in the store.


2 can(s)
4 oz. chopped green chili
2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
beef bouillon, cubes
4 qt
1/2 tsp
salt and pepper
1 tsp
oregano, dried

Directions Step-By-Step

Place 4 cups water into 4 quart sauce pan, add beef bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil.
In small sauce pan add margerine, melt and then add flour and mix to a rouge. Whisk into water mixture. Add green chili, stirr well. Add seasonings.
Sir well over medium heat until sauce thickens.
Special Note: Do not use real butter, as it will give the sauce a completely different taste, that you are not going to want.
This is great on any type of green chili sauced recipes. I use if mainly on enchiladas.

William, there are a lot of us that would love having a low temp of 71. I'm ready for summer. Can you find canned green chili there in Puerto Rico?

Just the recipe & comments I've been looking for! I live down here in Puerto Rico and there isn't much selection or variety when it comes to Mexican cuisine. It's quirkly, canned enchilada sauce doesn't exist here for some reason. BTW we got quite nippy last night with a low of 71!

Thanks for your comments on the green chili sauce. Yes, everytime I make this for any of my family or guest, they give comments on how they like it. So thanks for your comments.
Yes, I probably should have mentioned for those who need low salt, to use low sodium stock.
