Creamy Sour Cream Salsa Verde
- ½ cup sour cream

Salsa Verde (will just use 3 tablespoon of salsa verde for this sauce, use the rest for anything else you like! Check post for ideas.)
- 1 lb tomatillos (about 5)
- 1 medium onion
- 1-2 serrano peppers

- handful fresh cilantro

- In a pan over medium heat add 1 tablespoon of oil with tomatillos, onion, and peppers. Roast until charred, turning over as one side is done roasting.Add garlic and roast for a minute or two.Note: You do not have to roast onion, garlic and peppers just tomatillos but I like to roast mine.
- After all have been roasted remove stem from pepper and place all ingredients with cilantro in a blender. Blend until desired consistency.*I like mine a little chunky.If you would like a saucier sauce just add a tablespoon of water (chicken broth) at a time until preferred consistency is reached.Add salt to taste.
