Roasted Poblano Cilantro Sauce

"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."

    I made some changes to this recipe. I reduced the amount of onion by half after reading the reviews and I added a clove of garlic and about 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds. The seeds improved the viscosity of the sauce which I felt it needed. With these changes it was a stellar sauce.

    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 :) :)

    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!
