One thing I can say about my hometown of Santa Ana, California is that the worlds best tacos are found there. Well, maybe the best outside of Mexico. I loved to try all the various taco trucks…and as a spice lover, the crown jewel was always the deliciously fresh bottle of extra spicy green salsa sitting on ice in a compartment on the side of the taco truck (Salsa Cremosa de Jalapeño). Over the years I sampled hundreds of salsas, and to this day nobody has beat the spicy green salsa found at Alebrijes Taco Truck in Santa Ana (the pink truck next to Superior Market). I’d often go and get their stellar al pastor and cabeza street tacos and douse them with this green heat in a squeeze bottle. This salsa is so exceptional that I’d even dream about it.

Flash forward to today, and after leaving Santa Ana , I figured it’s fine time I crack the code and learn to make this salsa myself. This is a recipe near and dear to my heart. It’s great on just about anything—from tacos, gorditas, sopes, burritos to tortilla chips. Hope you enjoy this heavenly heat that’s been a part of my life for years, and thanks to Alibrijes for inspiring this simple culinary masterpiece

    Excellent! My daughter is a foodie and always tried to find a recipe that matches her food truck chile. I added half an avocado and onion. Thank you for producing another great recipe!
