Green Sauce

Game Time!

This is a wonderful, well actually great dip that you should try for one of your Super Bowl appetizers.

When you visit various restaurants for Mexican cuisine, more than likely, you will be served a green or red salsa with chips. This is my version of the green sauce. It yields about 5 cups in the event that you want to cut the recipe in half.

  • 8 tomatillos
  • 4 large green tomatoes
  • 3 large avocados
  • 1 onion, cubed
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted ground cumin
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut jalapenos in half and remove seeds and stems
  2. Remove husk from tomatillos, and rinse
  3. Cut onion into quarters
  4. Add tomatillos, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, and garlic in a large saucepan
  5. Add enough water to cover
  6. Blanch and remove from heat
  7. Remove skin and core from tomatoes and core from tomatillos. (use a bowl so that you can preserve the juices)
  8. Add tomatillos, tomatoes, onion, garlic, reserved juices, jalapenos, and juice from the lime to a blender
  9. Blend a couple of minutes until smooth; add the remaining ingredients
  10. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to taste
  11. Refrigerate until ready to serve
  12. Serve with tortilla chips or fresh vegetables
Twist: Roasted cumin and lime juice
