Chili Verde Sauce

I love chili verde burritos. I was always intimidated by making the sauce. After reading a few labels at my local grocery store I decided to try making my own. The result, a quick, easy, and delicious meal. My kids left the table asking when we could have it again!

2 Anaheim Peppers dice
1/2 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1 TBS butter
1 TBS cornstarch
1 cup of vegetable broth

In a sauce pan, simmer the peppers, onions, and garlic in the butter. Cool until the onions are translucent, and the peppers are soft.
In a separate bowel, mix the cool broth and cornstarch well. Add the mixture to the sauce pan and stir.
Transfer the sauce to a blender, and blend until smooth. Return the sauce to the sauce pan, and simmer for 2-5 minutes.

To make smothered burritos:

Assemble a flour tortilla with refried beans and cheddar cheese. Add 1 TBS of the chili verde sauce. Fold the burrito. Top the burrito with 3 TBS of sauce, 2 TBS cheese, 1 TBS chopped onions.
