Before going to work today, I made some green salsa. It was my first time to try to make such a thing. One of my favorite Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston is Los Cucos. I know there are other good Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston, such as Guadalajara, but the main reason I go to Los Cucos is because of their green salsa. I will eat like two bowls of it all by myself (ashamed I am not). I've been googling "los cucos green salsa recipe" for a while now and never came found anything. I recently started checking out a blog called "Homesick Texan" and found the recipe for Ninfa's green salsa, which is the salsa from another popular Tex-Mex restaurant. It sounded like the Los Cucos one so I decided to give it a try. I think it tastes JUST LIKE the one from Los Cucos....... OH HAPPY DAY!!! You don't understand folks, I have been wanted this recipe for YEARS and every time I visit Houston I HAVE to go to Los Cucos to get some green salsa. Now I can make this anytime I want and have it in New Jersey....w00t! That's right, I just said "oh happy day" and w00t-ed in the time span of three sentences--that's how I roll.
I adapted the recipe a little bit from the one I found online, so I'll probably post it this weekend. I'm too lazy to upload the pictures at the moment, but definitely will do so in the next few days.
