Green Tomatillo Salsa

Green Tomatillo Salsa Tomatillos are tangy and create a really unique tasting salsa. It tastes great on cheese enchiladas or nachos with gooey cheese. Stir it into beans for a yummy flavor and smooth texture or, just gobble it up on corn chips.


5 to 6 tomatillos, husked and rinsed
1 jalapeno, roughly chopped
5 to 6 sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped
¼ cup finely chopped white onion


Roast the tomatillos about 4 inches from the heat for five minutes. Flip the tomatillos and roast on the other side for an additional five minutes. Cool and transfer them to a blender or food processor. Add the cilantro and pulse to combine. Add a bit of water, if needed. Stir in the chopped onion, season with salt and serve.

Can't wait to try these! I love salsa!

mmm shrimp salsa

I already make #5 and I love it. Will try some of the others

Terrific salsas :) thank you for these! I am definitely going to try the first one for the buffet party I am having with friends and colleagues on Saturday - I wonder how much is needed to be made for around 20 people plus if it also will be this rather more delicious with corn added? :)

These look great, I'll definitely be giving some of them a try!
