I have to confess that I am one of those people that loves to cook from scratch, but with so many things to do in my day, sometimes I have to speed things up a little bit and that’s the case with this recipe. In the future I promise I will share a recipe for an authentique green sauce, but the jar of sauce that I recommend here is very close to the authentique flavor you can find in real mexican cooked green sauce.

When you have all the ingredients ready, its very fast to put together and when served, everybody is always asking for seconds. So on with the recipe.
