    Thank you for catching this, it should read 4 ounces of canned green chilies (not drained).

    You can use the WildSide jar. Happy blending!

    Is there any reason not to use the Wild Side jar? I don’t have a 4-side jar.

  • Blendtec

    You can use fresh but the recipe calls for canned because the juices are used as well. Happy blending!
