I have recently discovered that Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde makes just about anything rather delicious so this is my homage to the wonderfully inexpensive and tasty green concoction:
Salsa Verde over eggs: Pour it over scrambled or over easy eggs and top with diced avocado.
Salsa Verde as a dressing: Toss left over chicken with some salad greens, green onions, diced tomatoes, cilantro, and diced bell peppers. Use the Salsa Verde for a refreshing taco salad-ish dressing.
Meat cooked in Salsa Verde: I have made this several times, my two favorites have been Pork Loin and Chicken.
Place entire pork loin in the crock pot. Sprinkle the loin with some sea salt. Add two cans of diced green chilis and two jars of Salsa Verde. Cook all day on low. Make lettuce tacos or serve over kale, chard, or whatever greens you might like.
Put a whole chicken in the crock pot. Add 3 chopped carrots, 4 chopped celery stalks, and 1 sliced red onion. Pour in two jars of salsa verde and one can of diced tomatoes. Cook all day on low.
Salsa Verde for tacos: Brown 1 lb of grass fed beef, season with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, a little cayenne, and a little sea salt. Pour in a jar of Salsa Verde and bring to a simmer. The possibilities of this mixture are endless: Lettuce tacos, taco salad, serve the meat over sliced purple cabbage, scramble the meat mixture with eggs, it’s all good!!!!
