As I continue to share some of my blog’s most read articles to celebrate our 4th anniversary, here is the #1 most read recipe ever. And it comes from my talented sister-in-law who was born and bred in New Mexico, so her homemade green chile sauce is the real thing. Take a look and yum…
Manic: Want to make homemade green chile sauce, but don’t have a lot of time to do so.
Managed: Remembered that my sweet sister-in-law made me a little recipe book years ago that has a simple and savory homemade green chile sauce recipe. It is New Mexico-style to boot! I found the book, so here it is!
First the Homemade Green Chile Sauce — Easy & Pleasing!
What You Need:
1 cup blended green chile (I used Anaheim Chiles and it came out great)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup flour
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
What You Do:
1. Place peeled and seeded green chiles into blender (about 4 to 6). (I took out the seeds in the Anaheim, but I did not peel.)
2. Blend them to a pesto consistency.
3. Add garlic powder, salt, flour, soup and water. Blend until smooth.
4. Place in a medium-sized sauce pan and bring to boil, stirring constantly.
5. Turn down to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop sticking.
Now read on to see how to make the smothered burritoes, that my family loved….
Green Chile Smothered Burritoes
What You Need:
1 can refried beans (however, I used black beans with jalapenos mixed in instead since my family likes black beans)
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 lb. cheddar cheese
homemade green chile sauce that you just made 🙂
1 Tablespoon Schilling Chopped Onion
What You Do:
1. Brown ground beef with the onion. Drain.
2. Heat beans in a sauce pan until warmed.
3. Heat green chile sauce.
4. Grate cheddar cheese and warm tortillas in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds each.
5. Spread one tablespoon each of meat, beans, sauce and cheese in each tortilla.
6. Roll up and cover with sauce.
So delicious and my kitchen smelled good, too! The homemade green chile sauce smelled so good!
Thank you to my sister-in-law, Kathy, who took the time to make me my little cook book several years ago. It is a treasure and I love her New Mexico-style cooking.
What are your favorite fixings to put in a tortilla? Share here in the comments section!
I like to replace meat with chopped onion and black bean burgers all mashed up—works great.
Your photos of preparation process really enhances recipes, making them super easy to follow. Thanks!
Thanks for giving us the veggie version. Sounds delicious! 🙂
didnt say how much water to add!!
Thanks so much for checking out the managedmoms.com website. We received your comment about the Homemade Green Chile Sauce and Smothered Burrito recipe not listing the water amount, however the water amount is listed, both in the ingredients and in the recipe instructions. Please clarify if you saw another spot that is missing the water amount that we are not seeing. Thank you.
The water amount (2/3 cups) is listed under the first recipe for the green chile sauce.
Didn’t say what size tortillas, but tablespoon of meat and beans doesn’t seem like much for a large one.
I love leftover turkey, or even BBQ meats in my burritos.
Thank you so much for visiting managedmoms.com and for leaving a comment. You can definitely use the large tortillas and fill it with more than one tablespoon….yummy! I love your idea of using turkey, too. And I have also used leftover BBQ pork that I crockpotted the day before. Very tasty!
