Green poblano sauce is a mixture of green salsa and pesto. The poblano adds a smokey subtle spice and the pumpkin seeds offer texture and crunch. This sauce does not have a ton of ingredients but the layering of pepper, cilantro, pumpkin seeds, lime, and coriander seeds gives this recipe a nice depth of flavor. Use this sauce on tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, bowls, soups, and even salads.
