Green Salsa (Salsa Verde)

Salsa Verde is such a delicious addition to so many dishes. It’s a flavorful staple in Mexican cuisine and can be eaten fresh on the side with some tortilla chips, on some chicken enchiladas,…etc., or as an addition to other dishes that need a little extra #FLAVOR!

For this recipe I used serrano chiles but you can also use jalapenos. Jalapenos are bit lower on the heat scale but really not a very big difference (at least in my opinion). 

This batch didn’t last me very long. I actually used about half of it to make some Chilaquiles which I will share in a separate post.  The other half of this had my fiance and I licking the bowl (wishing I made more)! LOL

Optional: you can add some fresh cilantro to this recipe (which I didn’t do this time around only because I didn’t have any. Normally I do add some cilantro to my salsa; but you dont HAVE to. 🙂 It still tastes BOMB!
