That's right. Houston. For 4-6 months. The country livin' dream is on hold for a little while.
Mark drove me down here and helped me settle in, then took the car back up to the Holler leaving me in Houston with Mighty the Cat and a bicycle. While together, Mark and I managed to try a few Mexican places and discovered the lovely green salsa of Houston.
From the Homesick Texan's blog, a recipe for this divine creation:
Ninfa’s Green Sauce
3 medium-sized green tomatoes, coarsely chopped (you can substitute yellow if you can’t find green ones, but never use red)
4 tomatillos, cleaned and chopped
1 to 2 jalapenos, stemmed and coarsely chopped
3 small garlic cloves
3 medium-sized ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
4 sprigs cilantro
1 tsp. of salt
1 1/2 cups of sour cream
Combine chopped tomatoes, tomatillos, jalapenos and garlic in a saucepan. Bring to a boil (tomatoes provide the liquid), reduce heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Place tomato mixture with the avocados, cilantro and salt in food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and stir in sour cream.
Makes 4 to 5 cups
Looks like we'll try to make this in the Holler soon! I am happy to see that it does indeed include avocados. I was starting to get an identity crisis each time I tried to call this yummy sauce "Guacamole" and got corrected.
