Authentic New Mexican.
Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cover and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes to wilt onions.
Stir in the flour, cumin, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes. The mixture will tend to ball up but will be fine. When the mixture just begins to color, remove pan from heat and gradually pour in broth, stirring constantly to prevent lumps, using a wire whisk.
Add all remaining ingredients. Return pan to heat and bring to boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
The sauce should be thick enough to nap a spoon. If too thick, dilute with a bit more broth or water. If a smooth sauce is desired, puree a cup at a time in processor or blender. (Pureeing 1 cup only and adding it back to the rest of the sauce makes a nice consistency.)
