There is nothing better than homemade salsa and this tomatillo salsa verde is so easy to make and delicious





The Aztecs were the first to grow tomatillos for harvest, but the fruit itself dates back to 800 B.C.

In Mexico and Guatemala, tomatillos and spicy peppers are commonly roasted and then ground together to form salsa verde, a green sauce used as a condiment on meats and other foods. Tomatillos are a good source of dietary fibervitamin Cvitamin K, and niacin.


This sauce is probably one of the most adaptable of all of the salsas: It can be used for dipping tortilla chips; adding zest to guacamole or saucing enchiladas, Tacos, or homemade tamales.




How to Make Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Wash tomatillos, you’ll notice a sticky film on the surface, which will come off with a quick rinse under warm water.
