By Jolinda Hackett,


* 2 tbsp vegetable oil
* 2 tbsp flour
* 2 tbsp chili powder
* 1/2 tsp cumin
* 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
* 2 cups water
* 1 8 ounce can tomato paste
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp onion powder
* 1/2 tsp salt

Heat the oil, flour and chili powder together in a large pot. Allow to cook for a minute or two.

Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a slow simmer. Stir well to combine and dissolve tomato paste in water. Allow to cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more spices as desired.
