In my opinion, there is no cookie cutter way of making a good sauce. There are a ‘gazillion’ sauce recipes out there, from the recipes past down from generations to generations to others created by accident or by intent. The key is to prepare a sauce with the right flavor combination and right food pairing.

Ingredients

Green Sauce
• Green peppers (1 cubanelle pepper, 1 Poblano pepper, 3 Jalapeño peppers
and 1 bell pepper).
• 6 large fresh basil leaves
• 1 medium size onion, chopped
• 1 tsp chicken bouillon
• 1 tsp curry powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 cup canola oil

Note: Alternatively, you can just use green bell pepper and fresh basil leaves, if you don’t have access to other green peppers. However, in this recipe, the Jalapeño pepper is hot, so if you want a little kick to the dish but don’t have Jalapeños, add any other pepper of your choice.
