I was working at this Italian restaurant for a couple of years, knew the menu well. Then this one time one of guys in the back of the kitchen is cooking God knows what in a pot full of water, but it doesn’t smell like Italian food.
So I ask “Hey Marco what you doing man?” and then he speaks two words that will forever change my life “Salsa Verde…”
I walk around to where he is and he smiles and lifts the tin foil covering the top of the pot -and it looks like the depths of Hades.
We’re talking a pot full of nothing but jalapeños.
Marco sees my face and laughs, “… You just try’em and you see.”
And though I’m not a big fan of internal bleeding, I agree to try it -oh my.
About twenty minutes later he serves up this incredible salsa that keeps me shoveling chips into my mouth.
And here I am offering you the same thing “…you just try’em and you see.”
The recipe is way simple and it’s flavor is addictive.
All you need is 30 jalapeños (yes I’m serious)
3 large white onions,
3 big fists full of fresh garlic -oh yeah.
Put everything but the garlic in a big pot of water and boil until the stems pop off the jalapenos with no effort.
Once the jalapeños are ready -everything is ready.
Put all of the ingredients into a blender along with the raw garlic. Blend into the consistency of your choosing little chunky little smooth either way. I like mine somewhere in between and salt to taste.
You’re done; thats it!
Amigo, now you’ve got a fat bowl of the best stinkin’ green sauce this side of the river, so grab a bag of chips
–it’s siesta time.
