  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ bunch cilantro , stems removed and finely chopped
  • 1 tomatillo
  • 1 stalk green onions , white parts removed and finely chopped
  • 2 Serrano peppers , roasted
  • ½ Jalapeno pepper , roasted
  • ¾ cup roasted hot hatch chiles (I like to use a mixture of green and red)
  • salt and pepper , to taste (I used 1 tsp each)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • cups shredded "extra melt" American Cheese (like Land O Lakes American cheese)


  • Into a high-speed blender, add all the ingredients except the cheese. Blend until just combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a large pot and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Once mixture is boiling, turn down the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Fold in the cheese until melted.
  • Serve the sauce immediately while warm, or transfer the Boom Boom sauce into an airtight container and refrigerate. ENJOY!
