OMG I think Ive got the recipe for the Delicious green sauce that comes as a condiment at the California restaurant Pollo Inka. Can be placed on top of any protien or just on rice. Be careful its addictive.

How to Make Spicy Green Sauce (Peruvian Aji Verde)


  1. In a blender or food processor mix the lettuce leaves, serrano chilies, mayo, lime, cilantro and salt.
  2. Adjust ingredients to taste or amount your gonna make.
  3. Use breadcrumbs as a thickener. If sauce is too runny then start with a tablespoon and add as needed. Want to be a consistency a little looser than hummus.
  4. Enjoy as a dipping sauce for veggies, over rice, protein, or drink from the bottle!!!
