Definitely has a good kick from the tomatillo sauce, but this is a fantastic salsa with a perfect creamy texture. We enjoyed it as much as a fresh veggie dip as we did with tortilla chips. And my next batch of fish tacos definitely will be topped with this. Four ingredients into the blender, and in less than 5 minutes, you'll have a salsa/dip that'll WOW folks. Loved it!


When I saw this recipe posted on the main page, I was so intrigued that I went to the store, bought the ingredients and made it that night. It took me a few minutes to find the cooking sauce because I was just overlooking it among all of the salsas, but I eventually found it in the Hispanic foods section in Safeway. I thought it was really good, and very easy to prepare. It had a very small bit of spiciness to it, and I knew my husband liked a bit more of a kick, so I added a touch of cayenne pepper to it. I made tostadas, and poured the sauce over the top. So good. Honestly, I thought my husband would rave over it a bit more than he actually did, but he did mention that he liked it. We have a lot of it left over, so I'm going to use the rest as a dip.


This recipe is perfect as is! Very quick dip to put together and presents nicely for when guests stop by. We dipped veggies, pretzels, and crackers and all worked well with it! I cant wait to add as a sauce for grilled chicken or tacos!
