Call it what you want, whether it be salsa verde, Mexican green Sauce, tomatillo sauce, or pure bliss, but this sauce seriously will lift up your food to the next level. I drizzled this sauce on the recent chipotle and orange pork tacos and it was amazing. On my spare time, I play around with mixing simple ingredients that hopefully create a truly wonderful outcome, and this is one of them. Consider it a condiment, or a salsa, or something you just want to drizzle over a salad, taco, or heck even spread it on some bread, this tangy, yet ever so slightly spicy sauce is really wonderful.
I made this sauce early one Sunday morning as my chipotle and orange marinated pork tacos were near completion. It only takes a few ingredients and a blender, yields over a cup of sauce, and is, and could be something that I continue to make on a weekly basis.
- 5 tomatillos, husks removed, washed, and quartered
- 4 cloves of garlic, rough chop
- small handful of cilantro
- 1/2 cup of water
- 3 Serrano chili peppers, rough chop (more if you really like it spicy, less if not, but at least 1)
- generous pinch of salt
- 1/2 of an avocado
Look at those ingredients. They scream fresh. You can almost smell and taste how delicious it is going to be. Toss everything in the blender, and blend it until you have a smooth sauce, no chunks allowed in this one. Pour into your small serving bowl and let your imagination run wild. Just the right amount of tangy spice makes this sauce really stand out. Let me know what you put it on!
