Juanita’s Green Sauce:
1 1/2 large Avocados
3 cans Herdez salsa verde
1 bunch cilantro, stems mostly removed and parsley chopped
3-4 serrano peppers, seeds removed. Wear gloves!!!
1 can chicken broth
Salt

This recipe is all about blending. So blend, and then blend some more!

Pour salsa verde into a blender, add cilantro and blend well. Add avocados and blend well. Add serrano peppers and blend super well.
Place a fine strainer over a large saucepan, and pour sauce mixture through it using a spatula to press through. When finished you should have a very smooth sauce in your pan. Add chicken broth and cook on medium heat until it is heated through, about 5 minutes. Pour into glass container to store. I use large mason jars.

Taquitos:

Cooked shredded beef, barbacoa, or pulled pork.
Corn tortillas

Heat abut ½ inch of oil in a large skillet. The oil needs to be hot, about 350 degrees.
While the oil is heating, warm the tortillas in the microwave or regular oven to get them soft. Place between two towels to keep them warm.
Put a small amount of meat into the center of the tortilla and roll it up nice and firm. Use a toothpick to keep it rolled up.
Place the taquitos close together in the oil with the folded side down and cook on each side until they just start to turn a golden color. Cook them in two or three batches.
Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
Serve with Juanita’s Green Sauce

  1. Hi Amy, I too am computer challenged. I want to print the darling cards and can’t figure how to do it. Clicking on the printable download doesn’t do anything, HELP

    • I apologize for not getting back to you sooner! My email is having problems and I can’t access them! I will see if I can get you a PDF. Thank you for the heads up!

  2. Dear friend, it is obvious that I am a cook, not a web designer, I can barely get the recipes on haha! Thank you for liking my recipes! ~Amy

  3. Loved all your ideas/suggestions and all of the ideas for additions. Have you ever tried pomegranate seeds in the guacamole? I thought it was a weird addition until I tried it. So amazing.

  4. I’m having trouble finding the limeade recipe as well. I did what you suggested above and scrolled down to the bottom of the page (several times) and never found the Dessert Nachos. I’ve also searched for Dessert Nachos and Iced Mojito Coconut Mint Limeade with no results. I love your recipes…but this website is not very user friendly.

  5. Thank you! And yes! Just scroll down, it is a separate post, just the Dessert Nachos. Or search and it will come up. 😍
