    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.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut the stems off the jalapenos and throw them in a small pot.
    2. 2
      Remove seeds if you don't want it as spicy.
    3. 3
      Add peeled garlic.
    4. 4
      Add a small amount a water, about 1/4 cup or a little more to get a steam effect.
    5. 5
      Place on stove at a low medium heat to get it steaming for about 15 minute.
    6. 6
      Add contents to a blender and add oil and blend until smooth.
    7. 7
      Add salt to taste.
    8. 8
      You 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.
    9. 9
      I used olive oil but I doubt a mexican restaurant uses olive oil.

      Delicious! Spicy, but not too hot. I halved the recipe and when I was cooking the jalapenos the water evaporated enough to singed them, but it actually added nice toasted flavor to the jalapenos. I loved the simplicity of this recipe and the only thing I would do different next time would be to use maybe half a bouillon cube, to reduce the saltiness. Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!

      This is the most addictive substance known to man. I use to buy it by the quart and bring it back to Mississippi with me.
