This Tomatillo Salsa Verde is the perfect green sauce to serve on your table for a variety of dishes and it’s also perfect to make enchiladas & chilaquiles verdes. A true versatile salsa!
Tomatillo salsa, one of the greatest taco toppings, is a cinch to make! The tomatillos are stripped of their papery skin, which can get sticky at times. To avoid sticky fingers when you’re peeling & cutting them, just wet your fingers a little bit and that should do the trick 😉
How to Make Tomatillo Salsa Verde
The preparation could not be easier than this!!!
To bring all of the flavors from the onions, garlic & peppers, we sauté them first until lightly browned.
We then cook the tomatillos in chicken stock for a few minutes until soft.
Once the tomatillos are cooled slightly, we add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree until you reach the desired consistency.Print
This sauce is perfect for enchiladas, chilaquiles, beef, etc. It also works great as a green tomatillo salsa to serve on your table. To make it spicy, just add a another jalapeño or a serrano pepper.
