Green Sauce

Although my sauce doesn't really look all that green - this was a huge hit at our table!  I WILL make this again for sure.  Talk about a sauce with a kick... wow!  I found this scrumptious little sauce over at One Perfect Bite.  It was AMAZING!!  I'm going to give you a bit of warning... be careful - remember that Serranos can be hot, hot, hot... as I've said many times, you can always add more, you can never take away.  The first time I made this sauce I used the exact ingredients and I don't know if Mary can handle hot better than I can, or if I just had a really hot batch of Serrano peppers - either way, it was HOT!  Ok, not so bad you couldn't eat it, but hot enough where it lingered on your tongue and lips.  No matter, this sauce is delectable and I just made sure to change up things a little the second time around - and this is what worked out perfectly for me.

Oh, and thanks for the great sauce recipe, Mary!  As most of you know, I'm always on the hunt for the next best sauce!

Looks tasty, Jenn, but I'm going to cut back a bit on the serranos! A little heat is plenty for me. Love these sauces!

4 serranos in this little bit of sauce? Yeeeeouch! Yeah, that is spicy.
