Ninfa, one of the pioneers in Tex-Mex cooking, used to serve this green sauce in her restaurants. Since she's passed, the Ninfa's near me has stopped adding avocados, no doubt due to the expense, which is not worth eating. So, I make my own. The hardest ingredient to find may be green tomatoes. Plan on making this salsa for 6 or more guests, as it doesn't keep very well until the next day. This recipe has been printed in numerous publications over the years, including "The Houston Chronicle."
