When I lived in Houston, I frequented Ninfa's. I always had this green sauce. I love it. I am really glad to have the recipe now. I just made my first batch. Easy & tasty.

This stuff ROCKS! I've made it quite a few times already. We love it on almost anything mexcan! My favorite is stirring a bit into rice. Great on tacos and so on. Thanks for sharing! :)

LOVE IT- this is almost always in our fridge. I sometimes use lime instead of lemon. Great snack !
