      I use this recipe every time I get a batch of green chiles (used to live in NM). My friend was just out there and hooked me up with six pounds. I made this recipe and as always, it's perfect! (just had it over scrambled eggs) The only thing I changed out is vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I think the chiles do better without the distraction of the chicken flavor.

      It's Hatch Chile time in San Antonio too! Bought my case of roasted peppers yesterday and made your Sauce today -- I have "hot" peppers and the sauce is great - definitely not for the wimpy! It produced 6 half-pint jars which I am canning instead of freezing. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Although this is a nice departure from what my family usually uses, I didn't like the chicken broth either. I appreciate the chile being the most prominent flavor in my green sauce. I would suggest you try real Hatch Chile as well. You can order online at
