Stuffed Hatch Chili Peppers with Lime Cilantro Sauce

So, my dad ordered some Hatch chili peppers. If you aren't aware, Hatch chili peppers are a special type of pepper that is only grown in Hatch, NM.  They are quite delicious; however, with my CSA, I need more peppers like I need a hole in the head.  (Currently I have a 1 gallon bag filled with roasted frozen peppers and more to do).  At any rate, instead of telling my dad, no thanks, I said sure and then had to decide what I was going to do with this latest batch.  I did decide to stuff some and even had resigned myself to find a recipe with either meat or cheese, but then came across this recipe.  Wow!  These were so good!  To be honest, the filling did not really stand out, but between the pepper itself and the sauce...again, just wow!  I hope to make these again with some poblanos cause again...peppers...hole in the head.  (but it was the last week so it should be over soon!)
