Serve this great sauce over enchiladas, grilled pork tenderloin or other grilled meats and poultry, or as a side with beef tacos. From Chuy's Restaurant in Austin, TX. Prep time does not include roasting chiles.

Overall a great recipe to follow and sauce is amazing. The only thing I do differently is that I add about 3/4 teaspoon of brown sugar to the onions to get that extra carmelization going and then add the garlic and sauté another 2 minutes. I also get fresh roasted hatch green chiles from the actual Hatch, NM local market as I have a friend who frequents Hatch for work and picks me up a few canned jars. Great hatch green chile recipe!
