This sauce really originated from my husband, Jim, and of course, I had to "modified" it just a tad. Imagine that. Ha. I knew I had a hit with this "Green" sauce when one summer Jim and I had our family visit us in Colorado. We all went white-water rafting which is so so fun! After we got home, my teenage nephews were hungrier than bears just coming out of hibernation. I had to whip up something quick before they keel over from hunger. The "Green" sauce came to my rescue which I made less than 15 minutes. And to my surprise, they loved it! So to all my fabulous lake neighbors, friends, and family who have starving kids or guests --- this "Green" sauce is your answer. And it's okay to eat "just one more"!
If you can't find fresh, you can use canned tomatillos in a pinch. Also, wear gloves to handle Serrano pepper and Jalapenos. If you don't have gloves handy, I just de-seed the peppers under running water.
2 Jalapeño peppers (just use 1 if you do not want it too spicy)
1 Serrano pepper
2-3 fresh garlic cloves
2 - 3 green onions (use only the white part of onion)
1 bunch of cilantro (stems removed)
2 limes (squeezed)
2-3 cans of Herdez Salsa Verde (add more if too thick)
8 oz. Sour Cream
Season to taste (salt, pepper, Tony's Chacheres seasoning, 1/4 tsp of cumin seed).
Place tomatillos and Salsa Verde into a food processor. Add serrano pepper, avocado, garlic, cilantro, onions and lime juice. Process until smooth; add. Season to taste (salt, pepper, Tony's Chacheres seasoning, 1/4 tsp of cumin seed).
