As a Texan, it should come as no surprise that I’m a huge fan of chips and salsa. I’ve been known to eat so many chips before our entrees arrived at restaurants that I could hardly finish my meal. I just can’t help myself. When the salsa and chips are good, it’s so hard to resist!
But, green sauce or salsa is something that is a more recently acquired favorite of mine. A restaurant we just started going to has a Salsa Verde that totally changed my mind about it. It’s a rotisserie chicken and taco joint called Fireside Chicken and Tacos. They are located in Rockwall, TX. If you’re in the area around lunch or dinner time, you should check them out! It’s a locally owned restaurant with great prices and portions of delicious food!
I decided to come up with a green sauce of my own that I could enjoy at home. I wanted it to be much thicker and a little creamier than my fave at Fireside. It is seriously the BEST green sauce I’ve ever eaten. I couldn’t stop eating it while I was shooting my pictures! 🙂
You can tailor the heat level and balance of acidity to suit your own preferences. Omitting all the seeds will keep this on the milder side, but you can use as much of the seeds and ribs of the jalapeño as you like.
