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.

Speak Your Mind



  1. I miss Casa ole

  2. I do live in TX and ate at Casa Ole last Sunday. My 18 month old tried it for the first time, and liked it so much she dunked her paci in it! I’m anxious to see if this really tastes the same.

  3. Should the canned tomatoes and green chiles be drained or added with their juices?

  4. Yum! Looks fantastic!!!!! Perfect for chip and vegetable dipping!!

  5. mmmmmmm, this looks amazing! I’m pinning it right now! Thanks to you (and Amanda) for sharing.

  6. Wow, I love the concept of a sauce for Mexican food; looks delicious!

  7. This looks very tasty and i like how easy it can be made – thank you this recipe.

  8. I live in Texas and our family likes to eat at Casa Ole. When asked, we were told that the green sauce was NOT made of avocado at all but something else completely. They wouldn’t elaborate of course :/

    • Some add tomatillo. I have made a lot of versions with tomatillo and never came close to casa ole flavor. I am going to try this today and am guessing it will be on point.

  9. That look really good!

  10. This looks so yummy!

  11. This looks fabuloso!

  12. Yep. This is happening.

  13. LOVE that pretty green color!!

  14. Yummy! You had me at avocado.

  15. Totally nothing wrong with food making you happy!! This dip looks like it would seriously boost anyone’s mood!

  16. As someone who was an assistant manager at the original case ole in good ole Pasadena tx , this is close. Only modification I would noted for this size batch add 4 pickled jalepenos and a table spoon onion powder. Have to let it chill at least 4 hours for the favors to melt together, casa ole never used green sauce the same day unless they were completely out because the longer you leave it the better it taste. Also have to use daisy sour cream as others don’t taste quiet right.

  17. In this part of the world, Phils., we utilize & serve avocados with milk, sugar & crushed ice. Some sort of dessert. Weird? Had seen lots of food makers use avocados for salad etc. but I just glanced and pass mind.
    Glancing upon your blog, there’s “something” that pushed me to be interested . Thank you. Will definitely try your recipe.

  18. I’m pretty sure I would put this on all the things.

  19. When we moved to Mississippi from Texas 16 years ago we had to find a recipe. This is the one we found and it has hung on our refrigerator ever since then. We like to make it when we have company and serve a burrito/taco buffet. It is always a big hit.

  20. I have no clue how I’ve never came across your amazing blog before but I think I’m sticking around! Minutes ago I was just looking up recipes for crockpot italian chicken and came to your site, and then my next search for homemade whipped cream brought me back. Of course, now I see this recipe and this Texan knows I’m in a happy place! Congratulations on your newest, beautiful, bundle of baby girl!

    I just found your blog. Great stuff! I have always wondered how to make this yummy green sauce. Just made a batch and it is in the refrigerator chilling (after licking the spoon, I think you have saved this Houston, TX girl from making trips to Casa Ole now; their green sauce is so addictive). Congrats on your new baby girl! Now off to make your zucchini brownie recipe!

  22. Sooo tasty. It was kind of difficult to get the indegriends here in germany (at least for my hometown) but in the end this sauce was lovely to some chips. Used it for some potatoes the other day, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Texas born and raised in South Texas in the Lower Rio Grande Valley – now living in Lubbock, Texas for the last 25 years! Other than authentic Mexican Food (namely our own), Casa Ole is our go-to spot for Mexican Food.
    Love your blog!

  24. I have made this today and LOVED it. It taste a lot like the recipe and this is one of my favorite places to eat. I have a Casa Ole less then 3 miles from my home in Temple Texas! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  25. Hi, I just made the dip for the first time, and it came out great! I have it chilling in my fridge, and we are going to have it tonight . Thanks for the recipe.

  26. Do you have the recipe for the Casa Ole queso?
