NaBloPoMo: Tasty Tuesday

For today's NaBloPoMo post I am doing Tasty Tuesday again. Inspired by some delicious tomatillos I saw at the grocery yesterday, here is the recipe for a delicious green tomatillo sauce. The recipe is from one of my all time favorite restaurants in Houston, TX, Mama Ninfa's. Growing up in Houston my family and I ate there all the time. Its the best green sauce of all time! Enjoy with tortilla chips or any Mexican cuisine.
They had a franchise here in Austin but sadly it closed down not too long ago. Austin folks just dont know! ;)

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
