  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Preparation

  1. Finely chop onion and mince garlic.
  2. In a medium saucepan heat canola oil and sauté onions and garlic until tender.
  3. Stir in the flour until blended; add the cumin and oregano. Cook and stir for 3 minutes then remove from heat.

Helpful hints

  • Chili powder burns easily so stir frequently and be careful not to let your pan get too hot.
  • Make chili powder from dried chilies or use store bought chili powder. Be aware, chili powder has added salt so sodium content will be higher. Omit the 1/4 teaspoon of salt if chili powder is used.
  • Sauce keeps for 1 week in the refrigerator.
  • Use this sauce to make the Chile Colorado recipe from DaVita.com.
