At a glance
1/2 c butter, melted
2/3 c flour
1 qt chicken stock + water as needed (approx. 1 cup)
1/2 c pan drippings from Chili Lime Turkey (plus more to taste)
pinch of salt and pepper


Make a roux by melting butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour and whisk lightly to combine. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, being careful not to burn, until roux becomes fragrant and nutty and loses the flour or "dough" aroma, 3-4 minutes. Immediately add stock and stir until gravy simmers and thickens. Add pan drippings and combine; add a little more water and/or stock/pan drippings, as needed. Gravy will thicken after a few minutes of standing, so consistency should be slightly thinner than desired for serving. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve immediately.
