This is a favorite sauce of mine, and reminds me of a green salsa that was served at one of my favorite taco joints is Mazatlan. Very spicy!

This is my recipe, and they did not include 3 green onions to the ingredients. I have contacted them but they have never fixed it. So, add 3 green onions to ingredients and chop it up with everything else. Also the water can be adjusted to how thick you like your sauce. I usually start with a half cup and add to my consistency.

Not bad but not great. A little too much avocado for me and I love avocado. Next time I would decrease the amount. The spice is perfect though. Read More

I thought this salsa was awesome! I mainly followed the recipe except substituted lettuce for cabbage. I loved the taste of poblanos in this salsa. Read More

WOW fantastic flavor! I was looking for the recipe for the green (avacado jalapeno tasting) sauce we always got at the taco truck down the street. This is exactly like it. I love it on tacos as a dip or on tamales. I didn't know what hass avacados were and I think I used to big of avacados because mine was very thick so I had to thin it with more water. But it was still very spicy and tasty! This will be a staple in our house for sure. My husband took it to work and everyone wants me to make them some. I did add a little lemon juice to keep the avacado from turning brown as it started to do on the top just a couple table spoons. Great taste! Read More

PERFECT!!! I made this recipe last night and I can't stop eating it! I made the salsa exactly as the recipe stated (except maybe a little light on the salt) using my own home-grown poblanos and jalapenos. I was impressed by how quick and easy it was to make especially when compared to traditional salsas. The flavor was outstanding! It was the cool creamy flavor of a good guacamole followed by a nice kick of spice. I would almost qualify this recipe as closer to a spicy guacamole than a salsa. I can't wait to make this for my next house party! This may not replace the salsa at my next party but it will definitely be my new go-to guacamole dip! Read More

For me it needed the juice of two limes and four poblanos two per the recipe and two roasted gutted and skinned. Mmmmmm tasty. I seeded my japalenos two and went with less water. Makes a great chip dip. Read More

added some anaheim peppers and red onion seeded the jalepenos. just enough kick for those with spicy taste but mild enough for those who aren't so spicy. None left. Great on fish pork and chicken as a condiment. Read More

I also cut the water to a 1/4 cup and added approximately 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice. I think this is what the recipe was missing. Read More

I go to Laredo TX for work and eat at a little taco stand outside of a truck stop there. They make a salsa of butter peppers and cilantro. I love the stuff but wanted a healthier option. This is it! WOW! I omitted the lettuce doubled the peppers (for my tastes) and still added about 1 C melted butter. This stuff is knock your socks off good. Read More
