So simple and delicious! I used jalapenos - great spicy heat. We enjoyed as part of a salsa trio with chips, and I look forward to using the leftovers on eggs. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '11

What a great salsa! I used jalapeno and it was just right for me. This is so easy to make I'm sure I will make it often. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

I think this might be the first batch of salsa verde I've made that DH didn't request that I make spicier, lol! He also really liked the lack of onion and garlic in this. I really liked how easy this was to toss together. I had made it to serve with carne asada, but I suspect that DH will request that the leftovers be used to make eggs for breakfast in the morning. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2011
