    Can substitute other mild dried peppers for nora chiles, and hazelnuts for almonds.

    A classic recipe for romesco sauce (which my husband made not as classic by adding tablespoons instead of teaspoons of vinegar-whoops, but it still worked). We used this as a sauce for simply broiled fish, but it will go well with most vegetables as well. (I think it would be lovely with kale.) I used the pimenton de la vera option since I didn't have the correct type of dried peppers.
