Stir in the garlic and sauté for an additional minute, then add the flour and continue cooking for another 1 or 2 minutes.
Mix in the chile. pour in the stock and add the seasonings.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, until thickened but still very pourable.
