Cook Sausage: In a cast iron pan (at least 10-12 inches) over medium heat add olive oil and sausage. Stir often, breaking up the sausage into small chunks until browned (about six to eight minutes).
Make Roux: Add butter and flour to the sausage and stir for one minute until the sausage is coated and it starts to bubble. Then add milk and Dijon mustard. Bring milk to a low simmer and stir until the milk thickens (about two additional minutes). The milk should coat a spoon and not just run off.

Serve: Serve warm in the pan, or transfer to a slow cooker on low to serve. For garnish, add additional green chilies and chives.
