In our family salsa verde is a staple we use on a variety of dishes . We put it on our Schnitzel and our tacos, our roasted chicken and our eggs; we even put it on our gefilte fish. If you’re tired or in a rut or limited in the dishes you prepare for yourself or for your family, SPICE THEM UP with salsa verde.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy Salsa Verde is simply as an appetizer with freshly homemade lightly salted tortilla chips. I also make homemade tamales with a chicken in salsa verde filling. stay tuned for the recipe!
This rich and spicy, typical Mexican green sauce takes almost any dish to a whole new level. So put some variety in your life and try it for yourself. You choose the degree of spiciness you like, by adding or subtracting the number of hot peppers you use.
