You probably don’t remember, but I mentioned this sauce a while ago, when talking about my summer roasted vegetables. I just mentioned it in passing, but oh… this sauce. This sauce!

This. Sauce.

Chile Verde Sauce - This is amazing!
It’s my favorite condiment lately. I use it on everything. It’s fabulous over chicken, steak, or fish (my favorite is mahi-mahi cooked in a saute pan with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper). You can also toss it with pieces of cooked fish for a yummy fish taco. What I’ve loved most recently, though, is to serve it with scrambled eggs and those summer roasted veggies for breakfast. It’s DIVINE.

It’s great as-is, but there are a few ways you can change it up- lime zest & juice for a little citrus flavor, half a jalapeno if you like it super spicy, or even a little avocado for a creamy version (that will end up something like this). The recipe makes plenty and will last about 1 week in the refrigerator, but if you don’t think you’ll get through it in time, feel free to freeze it, or half the recipe (use a 4oz can of green chiles)

Chile Verde Sauce - Such a versatile sauce! We love it on tacos, fish, eggs, you name it!

This is good on everything–eggs, chicken, steak… you name it. Toss cooked fish pieces in the sauce for some dynamite and super-simple fish tacos.


  • 1 medium onion, diced (I like sweet onions)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (7oz) can diced green chiles (or two 4oz cans), don’t drain
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a medium saute pan, heat a small drizzle in olive oil. Add onion and saute until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  2. Add sauteed veggies to a food processor or blender with green chiles and their juice, cilantro, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Puree until very smooth.


Add zest and juice of the lime
Add 1/2 jalapeno with the onion
Add a pitted, peeled avocado with the green chiles to the food processor before pureeing.


  1. That sauce looks great! Not entirely related to this post, but you really should check out yammie’s glutenfreedom ( I would link if I knew how!) She’s also dairy and gluten free and has a wonderful brownie recipe that I think your family might enjoy! just in case you wanted another resource. Anyways, I thoroughly enjoy watching your family’s journey and love reaping the benefits of those delicious looking recipes! Thanks a ton for sharing!

  2. I made this and LOVED it. It was delicous on the fist tacos and yummy as a sauce added to the tacos that had mango chipotle chicken!
