    MommyMakes's Note:

    Just like the Mexican Restaurants around here. I like my green sauce creamy, the tomatillos in this recipe keep the avocado from going brown for a couple days in the fridge. It doesn't usually last that long!

      This was actually a very tasty green sauce. It was just a little mild for my particular taste, so if you like it hot - you might want to put in some extra jalapeno. Thanks for sharing! Will make it, again!
