Almond Sauce In reply to
Almond Sauce
2/3 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons lard
2 cups seasoned chicken broth
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Lightly sauté the almonds in lard. Place in a blender. Add 2 cups of the chicken broth and purée until creamy. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven and brown the flour until it is light brown. Add the almond mixture and cook over medium heat until creamy and thick, stirring constantly.
Taste for seasoning and adjust, if necessary. Add ground cumin and cover. Remove from heat. The sauce must be the consistency of heavy cream. If it becomes too thick, thin it with a little reserved chicken broth and cook, stirring, until of the desired consistency.

Serve over chicken and bake in oven at 325 for 1hr or serve over cooked pasta of your choice

Roasted Green Chile Hollandaise In reply to
Makes 2 cups.
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons lemon juice
8 ounces butter, very soft or melted
3 tablespoons minced roasted green chile
1 scallion, minced
Pinch cayenne
In a bowl fitted into a sauce pan with barely simmering water, whisk the yolks with the lemon juice until light and frothy. Whisk in the butter in 2-tablespoon increments. The sauce will seem thin at first, but continue to whisk until the sauce thickens. Be careful not to overcook because the eggs will scramble. When sauce is thick, remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
