This Green Sauce is great for dipping or put on top of Mexican dishes like salad, tacos, and burritos.

green sauce


I love when people send me recipes. As unhealthy as it may sound, food really does make me happy. Really good food puts me in a really good mood. So when people send me their stellar recipes, it makes my day.

I got an email from a reader, Amanda M., who said this Green Sauce was the bomb. I was a little confused at first. A sauce? Do I drizzle it over a burrito or eat it like a dip? Yes and yes. She said that there’s a restaurant in Texas, Casa Ole, that is known for the green sauce. Yet one more reason I was meant to be a Texan. It might look plain to the eye but it’s packed with flavor and makes a ton.
