This was okay but I really thought we would like it more than we did. It wasn't bad on our tacos when melded with all of the other ingredients but on it's own we didn't care for it. I only used two serranos but wish I'd added all four. My problem isn't that it was too mild though it's the actual flavor. Read More

I changed it up a bit. I went with 3 chile peppers, 1 serrano, and 1 habanero instead of the 4 serranos. I also added about 1/3 cup of sour cream and a tablespoon of lemon juice. It's wonderful, but not for the faint of heart Read More

Very Good! I made this exactly per the recipe and thought it was good but a little spicy. I added an extra tomatillo and a little garlic powder lemon juice and water and that made it a 5-star for me. Used it on cicken flautas made from here. Read More

This was good but I had to add a little extra to even out the flavor. We added lime and 1 extra avocado because the chiles were so spicy. Also my hubby thinks we should have added an onion so maybe next time. Overall good and I will make again. Read More
