Mamacitas Green Sauce  Ingredients

This green sauce is also called green salsa in many places. Since it’s a green sauce, the key ingredients are jalapenos. And, this sauce comes hot. Here’s what ingredients you’ll require to make your green salsa recipe-

  • Jalapenos (2)

Take two jalapenos for today’s recipe and chop them into two pieces. If you like heat, don’t remove the seeds. If not, you should remove the seeds or the recipe will be overheated for you to taste. We would like to remove the seed from our jalapenos.

  • Fresh Cilantro (1 Cup)

For a good flavor, you need to add 1 cup of fresh cilantro. Take the stems and wash them properly. You can substitute them with mint stems as well. 

  • Garlic (3 Cloves)

Adding garlic to the sauce will deliver a pleasant flavor. So, take 2 cloves of garlic. No need to chop them because you’ll blend them later. 

  • Lemon Juice (1 Tsp)

Another important element to make this sauce is the lime juice. You need to take 1 tbsp of fresh lime juice. 

  • Cooking Oil (2 Tbsp)

There should be an oil to add to the recipe. In this case, regular cooking oil is much more preferable. So, take 3 tbsp of oil. 

You can substitute it with the olive oil. And, Olive oil will deliver a nice flavor that you won’t get from cooking oil. Because regular cooking oil comes flavorless. 

  • Burrata Cheese (1 Cup)

Adding burrata cheese will improve the texture of your sauce recipe. So, take burrata cheese of 1 cup. You also can use parmesan cheese instead of burrata cheese. 

  • Salt (1 Tsp)

To taste the sauce, take 1 tsp of salt. The regular white sauce will be perfect. 

  • Amarillo Paste (2 Tbsp)

It will add flavor and color to your recipe. Add 2 tbsp of Amarillo paste. 

  • Red Wine Vinegar (2 Tbsp)

Take 2 tbsp of red wine vinegar. It will offer a robust flavor. However, if you want to skip it, you can because it’s an optional element. 

  • Black Pepper Powder (2 Tsp)

To get a little extra heat and flavor, black pepper powder comes in handy for this recipe. So, take 2 tsp of black pepper powder.
