Sharkie’s Casa Ole Green Sauce

Sharkie, creater of her Casa Ole Green Sauce was our winner of our first Super Bowl Recipe contest. This is her recipe for the Casa Ole Green sauce. This isn’t the real recipe for the Casa Ole Green Sauce but, we all think it tastes very much like the real recipe. If you have never had the green sauce that is in many Mexican restaurants, it is a creamy, slightly spicy avocado based sauce. I personally have had so many bowls of this sauce, the numbers reach well above the population of where I went to high school. Are you looking for something a little different when it comes to chips and salsa? If so, try Sharkie’s Casa Ole Green Sauce.

Sharkie's Casa Ole Sauce

Casa Ole (a restaurant) refused to fork over their recipe for the green sauce they serve, so I set to work in the kitchen and came up with this – I think it’s exact but we shall never know unless we ever get them to relinquish their version. Mines better! *GRIN* ~ Sharkie

    I work at casa ole. Trust me there’s avocados in the green sauce. But there is also jalapenos which youre missing. As well as some green food coloring

    I just made this and think it is a great, addictive dip recipe! I will make it again and again. That said, I do not think it tastes anything like Casa Ole’s Green Sauce (which I **love**!). This dip compared to theirs is too sour (I’ll omit the lemon juice next time) and too avocado-y. I don’t like avocados, but I love casa ole’s green sauce. Again, great recipe, but not casa ole at all.

  • Tammy

    Forgot! Nix the Rotel and green chiles also.

  • Tammy

    Actually, someone who works at Casa Ole told my daughter there are absolutely NO avocados in their green sauce. My guess is the green is exclusively from tomatillos and cilantro and the creamy is from sour cream. I seriously doubt they would use cream cheese. Nix the lemon and add lime juice instead, also white onions and use fresh minced garlic; only salt to taste. YUM!

    • Jenni S.

      That’s odd. When we used to go there, sometimes the sauce would taste a little different. They explained it was because they got in a different kind of avocado (not Haas) because at the time there were some issues with the supply of Haas Avocados.

      My best friend from high school worked there for a while and he used to make it for us sometimes. The recipe he used *definitely* had avocados.

    • Liz

      I agree Tammy! I’m not sure they use avacados. I used to work at Casa Ole’ many years ago and I never recall seeing anyone make it. I believe I remember it came to us in big plastic bottles already made. Now, I don’t live in Texas anymore and haven’t had it in ages but the last time I was down there I went to eat at a place called Gringo’s and they had a similar green sauce but was way better!! It was so delicious and addicting!!

      • Jen

        They make it in huge batches…does have Avocados…ihve the actually casa old recipe from.manage 15 yra ago when I had move away….was a good friend of mine….

    • Vayla

      This is actually very untrue. As a current employee of casa olé I can tell you that one of the main ingredients IS advocados. At my location the servers are responsible for cutting them and blending them so if your green sauce is runny..The server who made it is lazy.

      • Jen

        Suppose to not be lumpy..I have the actuay recipe from there

    • Chamomile31

      Casa ole does use avocado for the green sauce.. I worked there for many years. The reason you may not realize/remember it is because the “avocados” are in a vacuum sealed bag (already peeled and pitted)
      Theres also cilantro, sour cream, sliced jalapenos, tomatoes, salt and a little green food color to keep that rich green color

  • Voni

    Missed going to Casa Ole for this stuff after leaving home in TX…..was SO happy to find the recipe (and it saved me a 1300 mile trip!).

    • Jenni S.

      I know what you mean! Used to get some at least once a week even if it was just picking up some sauce and chips to eat at work. Now I live in Oregon and there aren’t any Case Oles nearby.

  • Marsha D

    LOVE this!! i used LIME juice instead of lemon juice and I added one jalapeno for some heat….SO GOOD!!!

  • Taylor

    Use a can of hot rotel and change the green chilis for diced jalapenos gives it a little more kick. Great recipe though I live in California so no case ole for me thank you for adding

    • Jen

      No chilia or rotel r in it…jalopenos r

  • Barb

    Is this code for something?

  • michelle

    does anybody know how long this will last before going bad? a day? a week?

    • Stephanie

      The Sharkie’s Casa Ola Green Sauce will last for a couple of days, I would toss it after 1 week.

  • Will

    Add some finely chopped cilantro and this nails it.

  • Lucy

    Oh my GOODNESS!!! It is better than theirs.
