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.

Ingredients:
  • 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
Directions:
  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
