This was submitted to a local Methodist church's cookbook by Jack Lorenzo, Ninfa's son.Ninfa Lorenzo was the owner/chef of a Mexican restaurant with several locations around the Houston area.Everything that I've ever had at her restaurant is great- Tex-Mex at its finest!You may increase the amount of garlic,cilantro,or pepper sauce according to your taste.

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.
