Ingredients

2 Tbsp cooking oil ($0.10)

2 Tbsp all-purpose flour ($0.02)

2 Tbsp chili powder ($0.30)

2 cups water ($0.00)

3 oz. tomato paste ($0.27)

1/2 tsp ground cumin ($0.03)

1/2 tsp garlic powder ($0.03)

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper ($0.02)

3/4 tsp salt or to taste ($0.03)

Directions

Add the cooking oil, flour, and chili powder to a sauce pot. Turn the heat on to medium and whisk the ingredients together. Continue to whisk as the mixture begins to bubble. Whisk and cook the mixture for one minute once it begins bubbling.

After one minute, whisk in the water, tomato paste, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper until smooth. Allow the sauce to come up to a simmer. Once it reaches a simmer it will begin to thicken slightly.

Starting with a 1/2 teaspoon, add salt to taste. I used about 3/4 teaspoon total. The sauce is now ready to use!
