This sauce has been served alongside a fiery red sauce at Tex-Mex eateries throughout the Houston area for over a decade. It’s a cooling antidote for those times you’ve indulged in a little too much hot salsa with your chips. A combination of tomatillo, avocado, jalapeno, sour cream, cilantro, etc.
“Mama” Nifa Rodrigues Laurenzo has been gone for many years, but her famous sauce lives on. I tried a version of it at a local mexican restaurant called “Los Cucos” in the Salt Lake Valley. I didn’t know what it was called at the time - but by googling the ingredients I thought it contained, I found it: Ninfa’s Green Sauce.
