I love my Smoky Chipotle Enchilada Sauce but have been wanting to make another sauce that was green and pepper-focused for a while now. Roasted poblanos are full of flavor with a mild heat so they are the perfect foundation for this sauce. Just a few ingredients will make this flavorful sauce, and it is fast!
Peppers are a little like playing roulette with your food because you never really know exactly how spicy they will be. I have had some incredibly spicy jalapenos before! If you find your sauce to be too spicy, add more sour cream or Greek yogurt as dairy cuts through heat very well. You could also use green bell peppers instead of poblanos, or a combination of the two, but it will slightly change the flavor of the sauce as well.
This sauce is amazing on our Mexican Street Corn Enchiladas (pictured above)! Because the flavors are classic Mexican flavors, you could use this sauce on so many things:
- Enchiladas of any type (especially chicken or veggie!)
- Smothered burritos
- Salsa for chips
- Sauce for tacos
This sauce is amazing, and I love how versatile it is. The fresh flavors really let the roasted peppers shine!
