Roasted Poblano Cilantro Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

This sauce is extremely versatile. It can be used as a dressing, sauce, a spread and a dip. Great on chicken, fish and pork. This has the essence of guacamole without the avocado. UPDATE: 9/15/2006- Adopted from the Recipezaar account.

The only reason for 4 stars is that I think the onion amount should definitely be cut in half. I love onions and thought it dominated all of the other flavors. My husband agreed. Other than that though, it was delicious! Served over some grilled chicken, and I think it will be nice on scrambled eggs like someone else suggested :) :)
