Roasted Tomatillo Salsa aka Salsa Verde is a super easy salsa to prepare! Once you taste this, you will never want to buy store-bought salsa verde again! Its great straight up with chips and great in many things as I said above, including my Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas and Roasted Tomatillo Chicken Enchiladas. The chicken recipe I will be sharing next week!
I have to be honest, until about 5 years ago, I had never heard of a tomatillo! A friend of mine made a salsa verde for a party and it was delicious! I thank her often for introducing me to the tomatillo! This is so easy to make and the salsa can be incorporated into so many dishes! Just remember to remove the husks. In case you are unfamiliar with a tomatillo, I started to remove the husk on the above center tomatillo.
Roasting the tomatillos adds a great flavor to the salsa! It only takes a few minutes to char the tomatillos and trust me, this makes a great salsa! Broiling the tomatillos, onion, jalapeno, and garlic only takes about 5-6 minutes. I add the garlic in the last 2 minutes, so the garlic does not burn.
I use the food processor to blend the salsa. A blender also works really well!
I am so glad my girlfriend introduced me to the tomatillo! If you enjoy this tasty Roasted Tomatillo Salsa, you should try Roasted Tomatillo Avocado Dressing! That is one yummy dressing that is great on salads and perfect added into tacos!
