Green Chile Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

Needed some green chile sauce for enchiladas and couldn't find any in the store that would fit my dietary restrictions. I looked on here and the only ones I could find required the roasting of Anaheim chiles. Not something that I wanted to do on a weeknight. So.........this is what I came up with.

Can't remember the last time I had anything to do with a green chili sauce, so I considered this a new adventure for me, & a totally satisfying one, at that ~ The sauce came together very quickly (followed your recipe right on down) & I liked it's mild flavor combo! As with mama smurf, I used it in a chicken enchilada recipe i made the other day ~ Very, very nice! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]
