Recipe by Java
I found this recipe in the local paper a few years ago and have been making it ever since. I prefer this vegetarian version over the traditional recipe which normally includes pork. It is wonderful over burritos, eggs or even plain with tortillas.
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon onion flakes
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1⁄2 cup green chili pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cilantro

- In a large sauce pan, melt butter or margarine.
- Add garlic and onion and cook until onion is re-hydtrated.
- Add flour and stir to make a roux.

- This can also be made in a crock pot.
