This is a mildly spicy, flavorful gravy you can pour over chicken, turkey or just plain mashed potatoes. It is very similar to a certain fast food chain's Cajun gravy.

Directions

  1. Place the green chilies into a blender, and process until smooth. Stir chicken bouillon granules and 1 cup water together in a saucepan, and bring to a boil, stirring until the granules have dissolved. Mix in the pureed chilies. Bring the sauce back to a boil over medium-low heat.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of warm water with the flour until the mixture is smooth; whisk the flour slurry into the sauce. Bring the mixture back to a boil, whisking constantly until smooth and thickened, 2 to 5 minutes. Stir in onion powder and cayenne pepper. Serve hot.

I made this gravy for my spice loving husband. It was ok and something very different from the gravy we're used to having. But he did say if he had the choice, he would choose brown gravy or milk gravy over this.

It was pretty good. I was hoping for more of a chicken flavor than chili.
