    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, minced
    • 2 medium poblano chiles, roasted, peeled, de-seeded, and diced into 1/4-inch pieces (approx. 3/4 cup)
    • 4 ounces mild green chilies, canned
    • 1 tablespoon jalapeno, de-seeded and diced
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/4 cup almond meal
    • 1 tablespoon pepitas, toasted and finely ground (you can also substitute pinenuts)
    • 1/2 tablespoon salt (or less, depending on preference)
    • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a small saucepan, then add garlic and saute' on medium heat. Garlic needs to cook, not brown.
    2. 2
      Once the garlic is cooked (not browned), add the poblano chiles, green chiles, jalapenos and water. Turn heat down low enough just to maintain a simmer and cook ten minutes.
    3. 3
      After cooking, most of the water should have evaporated and chiles should be tender. Add almond meal, toasted pepitas, salt and apple cider vinegar.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and allow to cool for a minimum of ten minutes. The cooling ensures that the lime juice and cilantro do not cook when you add them, as this can change their flavor dramatically.
    5. 5
      Add cilantro and lime juice, and stir to blend.
    6. 6
      Serve and enjoy!
