salsa verde

A few things are always in my kitchen, like limes, avocados, tomatoes, onions, and salsa! Salsa in Mexico usually refers to a delicious mixture of vegetables, herbs, spices and chiles liquified in a blender. Salsas are truly versatile, we pour them on meat, eggs, quesadillas, tacos, tostadas, you name it. By the way, that yummy mix of chunky tomatoes, onions, cilantro and pepper some folks in the US call salsa, we call pico de gallo in Mexico. You can also find my avocado salsa recipe here for a nice variation.

One of my favorite, easy to make salsas is called Salsa Verde. Here is my take on it:

Salsa Verde

  • 10 medium tomatillos
  • 3-4 serrano chiles
  • 1/2 white onion
  • Cilantro
  • Salt to taste

Peel and clean the tomatillos. Wash the chiles and cut the stems off. Place the tomatillos and chiles in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then cook for about 10 minutes. You will know when they are done when they change from a bright green to an olive green. Let them rest to cool down.

Strain them but keep the liquid and set apart. In a blender combine tomatillos, chiles, onion, a large handful of cilantro and salt to taste. Mix, taste for salt and consistency, if it is too thick, add a little bit of the liquid you set apart. That’s it!

Buen Provecho,

What a great recipe. Once a month I do a recipe roundup and I will be including this in my next one. I may actually even try the recipe myself, which is a rarity. :-)

I used to make this all the time, a little different though, but since kids grown-gone, empty house, you know, hard to cook for one. But I think I will make this. Thank you for giving me a good memory Amiga!❤️
