YUM! I assumed that there was a typo in the recipe and that it really means "1/2 cup salsa verde, 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder" and not the other way around. Other than that, made as suggested and enjoyed thoroughly with cheese quesadillas. The kids literally licked their plates clean. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.
