Salsa Verde

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by cervantesbrandi

Delicious on tacos, with chips, or as a salad dressing. You can adjust the heat to your taste either taking the jalapenos out all together or adding serranos in with the recipe.

Very good tasting salsa and easy to make. 1/4 tsp salt worked well for me and a double recipe fit nicely into my food processor. Yay!
