I have been using this green chile sauce for quite some time. It is unquestionable THE BEST green chile sauce. The only substitutions I make is I use chicken broth instead of beef broth because I use the sauce to make green chile, chicken enchiladas. I also cheat on the chile from time to time. Most grocery stores sell frozen roasted chopped green chile. It is a great time saver and makes the sauce so simple to make. Just be sure to thaw and drain completely when using as a substitute. Thanks for the Awesome recipe!

lasersmiledr, there is no need to roast, peel, and de-seed (NEVER de-vein your chile as that is where all the heat is!) as you can order pre-prepared hatch chile from several places in Hatch including the chile express and Berridge Farms.
