    Chef Lanfear's Note:

    Great mild sauce. Primarily used on enchiladas but may be used in any Mexican Dish calling for a green sauce. It goes especially well with pulled pork.

      Used 4 poblanos, and 3 Serranos (I wanted some heat). Roasted them all off on the grill and peeled/seeded. After blending I had exactly 6 cups, I put it back in the pot and simmer uncovered for about 45 more minutes to thicken a little, ended up with 4-1/2 cups. Love the consistency & the flavor. Next time I would leave out the chili powder, it detracted from the green color and I don't think it is needed for flavor or heat. Next time I will make a double batch too.
