"This is a favorite sauce of mine, and reminds me of a green salsa that was served at one of my favorite taco joints is Mazatlan. Very spicy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped, fresh cilantro
fresh poblano chile peppers, seeded and chopped
fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped with seeds
fresh serrano pepper, chopped with seeds
shredded iceberg lettuce
Hass avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
This is my recipe, and they did not include 3 green onions to the ingredients. I have contacted them but they have never fixed it. So, add 3 green onions to ingredients and chop it up with everything else. Also the water can be adjusted to how thick you like your sauce. I usually start with a half cup and add to my consistency.
Not bad, but not great. A little too much avocado for me, and I love avocado. Next time, I would decrease the amount. The spice is perfect, though.
I thought this salsa was awesome! I mainly followed the recipe, except substituted lettuce for cabbage. I loved the taste of poblanos in this salsa.
WOW fantastic flavor! I was looking for the recipe for the green (avacado jalapeno tasting) sauce we always got at the taco truck down the street. This is exactly like it. I love it on tacos, as a dip or on tamales. I didn't know what hass avacados were and I think I used to big of avacados because mine was very thick so I had to thin it with more water. But it was still very spicy and tasty! This will be a staple in our house for sure. My husband took it to work and everyone wants me to make them some. I did add a little lemon juice to keep the avacado from turning brown as it started to do on the top, just a couple table spoons. Great taste!
PERFECT!!! I made this recipe last night and I can't stop eating it! I made the salsa exactly as the recipe stated (except maybe a little light on the salt), using my own home-grown poblanos and jalapenos. I was impressed by how quick and easy it was to make, especially when compared to traditional salsas. The flavor was outstanding! It was the cool, creamy flavor of a good guacamole followed by a nice kick of spice. I would almost qualify this recipe as closer to a spicy guacamole than a salsa. I can't wait to make this for my next house party! This may not replace the salsa at my next party, but it will definitely be my new go-to guacamole dip!
For me, it needed the juice of two limes and four poblanos, two per the recipe and two roasted, gutted, and skinned. Mmmmmm tasty. I seeded my japalenos two and went with less water. Makes a great chip dip.
added some anaheim peppers and red onion, seeded the jalepenos. just enough kick for those with spicy taste but mild enough for those who aren't so spicy. None left. Great on fish, pork and chicken as a condiment.
I also cut the water to a 1/4 cup and added approximately 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice. I think this is what the recipe was missing.
