Salsa Verde

We incorporate this salsa verde into many of our dishes.  Outside of traditional Mexican food, it is also excellent for marinating chopped ham and sausage for breakfast dishes.  The recipe is not exact so you can adjust it according to your taste.  Make the salsa as spicy (or not spicy) as you would like by adjusting the peppers in the mix.

To make salsa verde cream dip, take a portion of the salsa and stir in some light sour cream {roughly 1/4 cup sour cream to 1 cup salsa.}  It makes a flavorful dip for chips and veggies and a creamy spread for sandwiches and burgers.
