Step 1

* Note: Ripened, dried poblano chilies are sometimes labeled "pasilla."

Remove and discard the stems and seeds from the chilies. Place them in a bowl and add enough water to cover. Weight them with a plate so they are completely submerged and let them soak overnight or for at least 6 to 8 hours. Or, place seeded chilies in boiling water, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let seep for 20 minutes or until soft.

In a blender or food processor, puree the chilies until smooth. Add the egg yolks, dry mustard, and salt and blend until smooth. Add the oil in a steady stream, very slowly at first. Continue adding the oil until the desired thickness is reached. Blend in lemon juice and tarragon vinegar. Place mixture in a bowl and fold in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate several hours before serving.

Serve with The Lilac Inn's "Crab Cakes" (see recipe).
