Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
1. For the Red Pepper-Agave Sauce, heat oil in small skillet on medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 2 minutes or until softened. Add agave nectar; cook and stir 1 minute or until onion starts to caramelize. Place roasted bell peppers, chicken stock, heavy cream, tomato paste and onion mixture in blender or food processor; cover. Puree until smooth. Spoon bell pepper mixture into medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Keep warm.

Test Kitchen Tips:
To roast the bell peppers and the Poblano chile on a gas stove-top, cook the peppers directly over a medium-high gas flame until blackened on all sides, turning with tongs. Transfer peppers and chile to a paper bag. Close bag. Let stand 15 minutes or until peppers are cool enough to handle. Peel off blackened skin. Remove tops, ribs and seeds.
To roast the bell peppers and the Poblano chile under the broiler, preheat broiler. Halve and core the peppers. Remove the tops, ribs and seeds. Place the pepper halves on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Broil 5 to 7 minutes or until the skin has blistered and blackened over the entire surface. Transfer to a paper bag. Close bag. Let stand 15 minutes or until peppers are cool enough to handle. Peel off blackened skin.
