Green Chile Sauce (great for burritos, tacos and enchiladas)
4 lg or 8 sm Anaheim chiles
1 tablespoon oil
2 cups chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
12-14 ounces broth
1 Preheat broiler and place chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet; broil 14 minutes or until blackened and charred, turning after 7 minutes.
2 Place in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 15 minutes. Peel and discard skins. Cut a lengthwise slit in each chile.
Remove and discard seeds and tops. Chop chiles to measure 3/4 cup.
3 Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Add chiles, coriander, salt, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4 Place half of chile mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Return pureed chile mixture to pan; stir well. Remove from heat; cool completely.
