This is a mildly spicy, flavorful gravy you can pour over chicken, turkey or just plain mashed potatoes. It is very similar to a certain fast food chain's Cajun gravy.

It was pretty good. I was hoping for more of a chicken flavor than chili. Read More

I made this gravy for my spice loving husband. It was ok and something very different from the gravy we're used to having. But he did say if he had the choice he would choose brown gravy or milk gravy over this. Read More

I added some chopped shrimp and crawfish cooked with Cajun seasoning. It countered what I felt was an overpowering green Chile flavor. It turned out absolutely amazing over mashed potatoes. Wonderful recipe! Read More

Delicious and easy! I left a few chunks in the chile purée for a pop of intense flavor here and there! Great recipe thanks! Tamara Read More

We LOVE green chilies and put them in anything we can think of. The BEST thing I have found to pair this gravy with is my green chile roast...it pairs perfectly! You can even use the roast drippings as your base instead of the water/buillion Read More
