The mild poblano chile makes this a fresh, family-friendly sauce to use for any type of Latin fare.


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 3/4 cups coarsely diced poblano chiles (1 to 2 chiles)
  • 1 cup sliced scallions (about 1 bunch)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tomato, deseeded and chopped for garnish


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles and scallions and saute for 4 to 5 min. Stir in whole garlic cloves and saute for 3 to 4 more min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Place cooled vegetable mixture into a food processer with cilantro and pulse 3 to 4 times to combine. Add salt, chicken stock and lime juice and pulse 3 to 4 times to a slightly finer consistency, but do not allow the chiles to be pulsed down smaller than 1/8-inch in size. Place chile mixture in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Cover and reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 to 12 min.

“I have to say that I thought Savory would be too expensive for a cooking hack like me. I was not only surprised, but bought a lot more than I intended to. Almost instantly, my cooking has gone up a couple levels.”
