Green Chile Sauce

I grew up in New Mexico and we put chile on EVERYTHING. This is my own recipe that I have been making since I became a vegetarian, and it has quickly become a family favorite.

This sauce is great over burritos, eggs, potatoes, stuffed sopapillas, meat and perfect when topped with cheese. You can even puree all of it in your blender and add a little heavy cream or sour cream to make a delicious enchilada sauce.

Under 80 calories per serving (according to calorie calculator - of course this changes if you add the cream)
