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.

As a dip, this is gone in minutes. I serve it with homemade tortilla chips. My family will put this on just about anything. Our new favorite is using it as enchilada sauce. Wonderful stuff!

Awesome sauce! I roasted the onion and a few cloves of garlic along with the poblano as well. Check out how I used it on my blog at Oh, and by the way I can't wait to try the leftover sauce on my scrambled eggs in the morning!
