Chef #1800322331's Note:
This is not like the tex mex green salsa you encounter at big chains that contain avacados or tomatillos. This is a more of a taqueria style sauce that you find in local mexican meat markets. I liked the sauce so much that I asked the waitress at Taqueria Arandas if she knew how to make it and she asked a person in the back and was fortunate enough to get an answer. It is VERY spicy.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut the stems off the jalapenos and throw them in a small pot.
- 2Remove seeds if you don't want it as spicy.
- 3Add peeled garlic.
- 4Add a small amount a water, about 1/4 cup or a little more to get a steam effect.
- 5Place on stove at a low medium heat to get it steaming for about 15 minute.
- 6Add contents to a blender and add oil and blend until smooth.
- 7Add salt to taste.
- 8You may need to adjust salt, water, and chicken cubes to suit the taste because jalapenos are not all uniform in taste depending on the season.
- 9I used olive oil but I doubt a mexican restaurant uses olive oil.
