Sharkie was the winner of our first Super Bowl Recipe Contest with her recreation of Casa Ole’s green sauce recipe. This isn’t the exact recipe for the Casa Ole Green Salsa but it tastes very much like the real thing. In Sharkie’s own words:

Casa Ole (a restaurant) refused to fork over their recipe for the green sauce they serve, so I set to work in the kitchen and came up with this – I think it’s exact, but we shall never know unless we ever get them to relinquish their version. Mines better! *GRIN* ~ Sharkie

Mixing together salsa verde in a food processor

If you have never had the creamy salsa verde that is found in many Mexican restaurants, it is a creamy avocado salsa (salsa de aguacate) with a hint of spice. I personally have had so many bowls of this sauce that the numbers reach well above the population of where I went to high school! This is a sauce that is easy to whip up in your food processor. It’s made from ingredients that include avocados, Rotel tomatoes, sour cream, cream cheese, garlic powder, and lemon juice. It’s delicious and addictive, and I guarantee you will make it again and again.

How to Tell if Your Avocados Are Ripe

  • When choosing avocados, many people get a bit stressed over finding ones that are ripe enough but not over-ripe. Here are some tips.
  • Press the avocado lightly with your thumb. If it yields a little to your pressure, it is good to buy. If it feels very soft, it’s over-ripe; if it is hard then it’s not yet ready.
  • A ripe Hass avocado (the most common kind) should have a deep purple (almost black) skin.
  • Remove the small nubby stem on the narrower end of the avocado and check the color underneath. A creamy yellow indicates that the avocado is ripe. A brown color means the avocado is a bit on the old side and is likely to have brown spots on its flesh.

    I work at casa ole. Trust me there’s avocados in the green sauce. But there is also jalapenos which youre missing. As well as some green food coloring

    I just made this and think it is a great, addictive dip recipe! I will make it again and again. That said, I do not think it tastes anything like Casa Ole’s Green Sauce (which I **love**!). This dip compared to theirs is too sour (I’ll omit the lemon juice next time) and too avocado-y. I don’t like avocados, but I love casa ole’s green sauce. Again, great recipe, but not casa ole at all.

    Missed going to Casa Ole for this stuff after leaving home in TX…..was SO happy to find the recipe (and it saved me a 1300 mile trip!).

      I know what you mean! Used to get some at least once a week even if it was just picking up some sauce and chips to eat at work. Now I live in Oregon and there aren’t any Case Oles nearby.

    Use a can of hot rotel and change the green chilis for diced jalapenos gives it a little more kick. Great recipe though I live in California so no case ole for me thank you for adding
