Mexican Salsa Verde - made with tomatillos

Salsa verde is a very popular sauce used in Mexican cuisine. Its rich sweet and sour taste makes it a perfect dip for chips or a condiment for tacos, enchiladas or grilled meats. There are several ways to prepare salsa verde, but this one is the one I like best because it is very easy and fast to make.


  • 1 lbs tomatillos
  • 1/8 Spanish onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 handful of fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • salt to taste

Remove the husk and rinse tomatillos. Blend all ingredients in a blender until it is a coarse puree. Heat the salsa in a pot on medium-low heat just until the salsa begins to turn from its original bright light green colour to a slightly green-brown. Remove from heat and enjoy!
