Burrito Gravy

Burrito Gravy
(about a quart)


5 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Mexican Oregano, crushed
½ tsp. Garlic Powder
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. Chipotle Powder
¼ tsp. Black Pepper
4 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
4 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
2 cups Beef Stock (unsalted)
1 (15 oz.) can Tomato Sauce
1 tsp. Sugar


In a small bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients and set aside.  In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Next add the flour and combine using a whisk and cook for about 2 minutes.  Slowly add the beef stock while continuing to whisk.  Once combined well add the tomato sauce and continue to whisk.  Now add the sugar and the spice blend you made earlier and continue to whisk until mixture thickens to the consistency of tomato sauce.  If it gets too thick thin with a little water.

Note:               Some people will use canned beef gravy instead of the beef broth.  If you do that here, omit the butter and flour.  You may need more water to get the consistency you want too.
