How to use the leftovers? If I don't make a double recipe, I never seem to get any of it! Seriously, this is a great recipe but tomatillos are scarce or really ugly in Ohio supermarkets. I found that my homegrown, homemade Salsa Verde works as an off-season substitute. (P.S. Tomatillos grow like wildfire here and keep for a while if picked before getting too ripe.) Just mix salsa with avocado, sour cream and cilantro - don't add salt until you taste it. Also, just in case there are leftovers, adding lime juice to the avocado can slow the darkening and add some flavor.
Love it! Not as spicy as I remember. I can kick It up a notch. In future I will use 1/2 as much sour cream....maybe sour cream/plain yogurt mix. 5 stores and NO green tomatoes....so I used firm red. Instead of blender, I just used a stick blender after it had cooled and used a pot big enough for everything. Since the jalapenos are cooked, in a pinch I could use jar or canned ones.
Loved this sauce! DH ate it with chips and likes it better than guacamole.
Wow! So good! Only change I made was cutting back the sour cream to one cup. As many reviewers have stated already, it does make a lot.
I loved this recipe, I brought the sauce to work.(we were having Taco Tues.)....Every one loved it so make it and enjoy.....
This is the best! No other resturant makes it like Ninfa's! I get request for this dip all the time!
I used this sauce to top some enchiladas and it was awesome! Everyone was licking their plates!
This was pretty good! Everyone seemed to like it at the Mexican themed party I made it for. Seems to me like it might be missing something though. Tasted too much like sour cream. Maybe a little cream cheese would help? I did a recipe similar to this before and it had cream cheese, so next time I'll try that.
This is a very good sauce! I'm not really able to give stars, however, since I was forced to use red tomatoes; I couldn't find green anywhere! I think it would have been much better with green tomatoes, although it was still very good without. So good, in fact, that I'll definitely make this again as soon as I can get my hands on some green! Thanks for sharing!!
Just like at the restaurant! We have moved away and don't have Ninfa's here, so now we are in heaven! It does make a LARGE batch, so if making it for a few people you may want to cut it in half. You can always use it as a sauce over enchiladas or even as a salad dressing the next day.
