Anaheim chile peppers are a great mild pepper for making this sauce. Poblano peppers can be a great alternative, but if you like it a bit spicier, pick up some Hatch chile peppers when they are in season.
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: about 5 cups
  • 2 pounds fresh roasted or frozen roasted green chile peppers
  • 10 tomatillos
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 6 to 8 green onions and tops
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth or vegan chicken-free broth
  • Garlic salt, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  1. Put the chiles, tomatillos, cilantro, and onions in your food processor or blender and pulse to a medium puree. There should still be chunks remaining.
  2. Transfer the green chile sauce to a stock pot and stir in the broth.
  3. Place the pot over medium-low heat, and simmer for about 2 hours, cooking off some of the liquid.
  4. Add the garlic salt and garlic powder during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
