Remove the peppers and keep the water in which they were boiled. Grind the peppers to a paste; adding a little of the water in which they were boiled to make this easier; add in all 1 quart of the water in which the peppers were boiled.

Heat the fat or oil in a skillet. Fry the garlic in this. Remove and brown the flour in this fat; gradually add the chile mixture and salt, stirring well. Simmer 10 minutes.

This will keep in a cool place for a while.
