Summertime Salsa Verde

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"Refreshing Mexican-style green sauce to put on tacos, enchiladas, or anything else you desire. A light, refreshing, and hot sauce that is perfect for summer time! Serrano chili peppers can be really hot. I use 1 to start with. If you want more heat, add additional peppers until your desired heat."

Quick, easy and yummy.

This is so good, easy and delicious. If you don't have a serrano pepper use a jalapeno pepper. Want it spicy - leave the seeds in, want it more mild, remove the seeds and ribs from the pepper....

I put one whole avocado in it not just one half.

Turned out great and spicy! Husband says it could use more avacodo. I did add the juice of 1/2 a lime and about a 1/4 cup of onion.

This is a quick delicious addition to fajitas. My family enjoys things hot, so I actually used 2 small Serrano chiles fresh from our garden. This is great on tortilla chips as well.

Very good. I added the whole avocado.
