3. From the Houston Chronicle archives
This recipe is reprinted at least once a year. It's known around Houston as "the dreaded green sauce", one of the first phrases of Houstonian-speak I learned. Whenever we eat there our table goes through the bowls of " the dreaded green sauce" over the very good red sauce 3 to 1.

Mary

Ninfa's Green Sauce

This popular sauce helped put Ninfa's restaurants on the culinary map. It is one of our most-requested recipes.

3 medium-size green tomatoes, coarsely chopped

4 tomatillos (Mexican green tomatoes with husks), cleaned and chopped

1 to 2 jalapeos, stemmed and coarsely chopped

3 small garlic cloves

3 medium-size ripe avocados

4 sprigs cilantro

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sour cream (can use light or fat-free)

Tortilla chips

Combine tomatoes, tomatillos, jalapeos and garlic in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tomatoes are soft. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Peel, pit and slice avocados; set aside. Place tomato mixture, avocados, cilantro and salt in a food processor (you may need to do this in batches). Process until smooth. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Stir in sour cream, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Serve in small bowls with chips. Promptly refrigerate leftovers. Makes 4 to 5 cups.
