poblano-pepper-sauceI went searching for this recipe on my website the other day and was completely surprised to find that I’ve never posted it. I think I originally learned the basic recipe from Bobby Flay at an early Aspen Food & Wine Festival, possibly before I even launched my food business. But over the years I’ve made it many, many times, and it’s always a popular choice for catered events.poblano-pepper-sauce-1It also couldn’t be simpler, freezes very well, and is the perfect recipe for fall, when all of the farmers’ markets are filled with chile roasters. I serve this on halibut or Chilean sea bass, but it’s also goof on chicken or pork. Here’s to fall right around the corner!
