Green Hot Sauce (Salsa Verde)

Green Hot Sauce (Salsa Verde)

Note: We used some smoked chilis that we got from our in laws (New Mexico chilis that were charred, we removed the skin) we also added in 2 extra jalapenos for heat and a little cilantro. DELICIOUS

  • 10 tomatillos, husked and rinsed
  • 8 serrano chile peppers, sliced (we used 3 charred New Mexico chilis)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons salt, or to taste


  1. Place the tomatillos, serrano peppers, onion, and garlic in a saucepan, and add water to just cover. Sprinkle the salt over the top, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the tomatillos are soft and have turned slightly brownish in color, 20 to 30 minutes. Add more water if needed to keep the mixture from burning as it cooks.
  2. Pour the cooked vegetables into a blender, and blend until smooth.

To Try next

Gotta try some homemade pretzels next, I think I found my recipe :)


Miss Paula Deen's House Seasoning

I use this for almost everything, to season my hamburger meat, chicken, fried potatoes etc.. many many uses and so easy to whip up

1 C salt
1/4 C garlic powder
1/4 C pepper

Blend together. Will keep in a covered container for six mos.

Fried Chicken

We mixed 4 eggs with about about 1/2 C or so of Jake's hot sauce and mixed that is your egg batter

Flour mixture, I mixed about 2 C flour and added some red pepper flakes, some cayenne pepper and some Paula Deen's Seasoning Ill leave the recipe for that

First salt and pepper your chicken pieces and let them sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Dredge your chicken pieces first in flour, then in the egg mixture , then back in the flour

fry in hot oil , (fill your pan no more than halfway full of oil or it may run over when you add in your chicken)

fry until the juices run clear and let sit on paper towels or newspaper until cool enough to eat
