When I saw Valerie (From Valerie’s Kitchen) post this creamy salsa recipe I knew I had to try it. Her recipes are always excellent; and I love the new Herdez Mexican Cooking sauces, especially the Tomatillo Verde sauce used in this recipe. I expected this recipe would be good. However, when I tasted the salsa, it was even much better that I expected. As a matter of fact, it is addictive! It is one of the best dips I have tasted in a long time, and one I will be taking to parties from now on. Unfortunately, when I tried it no one else was around to share it with. So, did I put it in the fridge to serve for later? Oh no! I finished it all by myself; and I don’t regret it! However, I highly recommend making it when you do have someone to share it with because, like me, you may not be able to resist it.The best part is that it is absolutely ridiculously and wonderfully easy to make. If you have five minutes and the four ingredients below, then you have a fabulous dish that will be a hit at any party. The Herdez Tomatillo Verde Cooking Sauce makes it so fast and easy, but it still has the same fresh, authentic flavor as if you spent all day roasting tomatillos.
Be warned: this cooking sauce is spicy! I generally like a medium spice level and I think it is spicy. That is why I used half a jar of the cooking sauce instead of a whole jar as called for in the original recipe at From Valerie’s Kitchen. That way it had a nice little kick but not too much.
- ½ of a (12-ounce) jar Herdez Tomatillo Verde Mexican Cooking Sauce
