Reviews for Salsa Verde
"This is an awesome salsa, but I would make it a little spicier if it was made for just my husband and me. I was surprised at how much there really was too."
"Will make again!"
"It tastes great, it's easy to make, and it keeps for a while! It's good with chips, tacos, and burritos."
"I haven't had green salsa before so I'm no expert on how it should taste. This was a good accompaniment to our tamales but I don't know that I'll go out of my way to make it again. Not too hot. Makes a lot."
