  • 2 Tbsp fat sausage or bacon drippings or use butter
  • 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 C whole milk
  • 2 green chiles roasted, peeled and stemmed and finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Roast your green chiles stem and peel and finely dice.
  • Fry up your bacon or sausage in a medium skillet and reserve 2-3 Tbsp of the fat. Or if you prefer using butter, melt the butter in the skillet over medium.
  • Add 2 Tbsp of flour to the pan and use a fork to combine with the butter or fat. The roux should develop a thick paste that's golden brown.
  • Slowly add the milk to the pan and whisk to combine and work out any lumps. Simmer on low/medium until the mixture thickens, then add the diced chile.
  • Continue to stir constantly until the gravy is thick and velvety, generously season with salt. Don't let it thicken too much - if it does, add a little more milk to loosen the texture.
  • Pour over your warm biscuits and enjoy!


Feel free to adapt the chiles to what is available and in season: Hatch chiles, or Anaheim chiles work well.
