Recipe: Mexican Green Salsa

While in Sayulita, Mexico the an avocado a day team really sought out to find the best food in town.  We were fortunate enough to experience some of the freshest food possible at Aaleyah's Nachos & Wings.  We ate at a lot of different places, but I think my favorite meal was the mahi mahi and shrimp ceviche at Aaleyah's.  Part of the reason is because the meal started with chips and this green salsa.  Kate and I are huge fans of spicy foods, so when we discovered this green salsa, we knew we had to share it.  I've never tasted anything quite like this and if you are a spice fan, you'll love this! My only regret of the trip is that I didn't discover this restaurant sooner!

Ingredients:
  • 15 jalapenos, sliced (approx. 4 cups; remove seeds to make it less spicy!)
  • 1 serrano pepper, sliced (add or take out to suit your spice tolerance)
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil*
  • 2 tbsp chicken stock powder*
  • A handful (or more) of cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Salt to taste
*Can substitute vegetable oil with coconut oil, and chicken stock powder with vegetable stock powder

Directions:
  • Heat saucepan on medium and add oil
  • Place sliced jalapenos, serranos, onion, and garlic into the saucepan and cook for 5 minutes (add small amounts of water if needed)
  • Put chopped cilantro, cooked ingredients, and the stock powder into a blender
  • Add 1/2 cup of water into the blender
  • Blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute (until desired consistency)
  • Serve with tortilla chips, eggs, chicken, or pretty much anything else!
  • Enjoy!
A word of caution:  This salsa can be really spicy so warn your family and friends before they try it! You can adjust the spiciness by decreasing/increasing the amount of serrano peppers. 

A special thank you goes out to Josue, Aaleyah, and the rest of the crew at Aaleyah's Nachos and Wings!

All the best,
Christine
