Green Chili Sauce Recipe
You know green chilies get their heat from a drought right? Well my green chili from last year proves it and has put the biggest smile on my husbands face.
Making homemade green chili sauce isn’t a daunting task yet one that I only do a few times a year. I make up to 10 batches at once in my canner and then portion off in 2-4 cup freezer containers at once. This is where my vacuum sealer comes in handy! Green chili sauce freezes really well and means I can have homemade green chili sauce ready in minutes for cube steaks with green chili sauce, cheese fries, green chili burgers, creamy chicken enchiladas, and even just a bowl of green chili with tortillas. It’s really hard to go wrong with green chili.
This green chili sauce recipe comes to you originally from my friend Candice whole doesn’t truly know how grateful I am for finally having a good green chili sauce recipe. I have tried well over 100 of them in the past and they were either super complicated or were found to be lacking. This recipe made with hot green chilies (or mild if that’s your needs) leaves your mouth smiling and your tongue wondering when the next bite is going to come.
