Recipe: Jalapeno Gravy
Spice up your holiday feast (or any feast really) with a kick of roasted jalapeno and chimayo style chile heat. This spicy gravy is perfect over mild turkey, fluffly biscuits, crispy fried chicken, or creamy mashed potatoes.
- 1 to 3 jalapenos, roasted, seeded and diced*
- 2 tsp. Chimayo Chorizo Sausage Spice
- 4 Tbsp. flour
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 2 cups chicken, turkey, beef, or veggie stock
*Number of jalapenos depends on the heat level you want. To roast, hold jalapenos over a gas burner flame or set under a broiler until blackened all over. Set in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap while they cool. Once cool, rub off the blackened skin, remove the seeds, and dice.
Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add Chimayo Chorizo seasoning to dry pan and stir for 30 sec. to 1 min. until aromatic. Add flour and continue stirring for about 1 min. until the flour starts to brown. Add butter and stir it into the seasoning as the butter melts. Once melted, keep stirring and cooking for 1 more min. Reduce heat to medium and add jalapenos. Stir in the stock 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between each addition to thoroughly combine and smooth out the gravy.
Add heat to a holiday turkey or spice up sausage for biscuits and gravy. Great with fried chicken and mashed potatoes.
