"There is really only one thing to keep in mind when it comes to this recipe: Always make plenty of green sauce, and by that I simply mean, the green sauce will go quickly so make a double batch just in case! If you, by some miracle, happen to have leftovers, simply keep it in the fridge and use it as a sauce for roasted vegetables or a spread for sandwiches. If you want to make the green sauce less spicy, use less jalapeño. You can also use full-fat Greek yogurt in lieu of the sour cream, or even use only mayonnaise if you wish."
