I am automatically drawn to anything that includes salsa verde. You can be assured that when I see it on a menu, I always order it and there are always at least a few jars of it in our pantry and fridge. The spice and the tang from the tomatillos just works. Plus it's usually mild, which means it's a salsa that can work for almost any palette.
Now let's talk about these tacos. Instead of reaching for a sodium packed taco seasoning pouch, let the salsa verde do the heavy lifting in this recipe. It adds all the flavor you need without all that extra salt. Pretty much any green salsa will work and you can decide on the level of spice you like. You can always add more heat with some chopped jalapenos for those who want it. Personally, I am partial to turkey for these tacos since it really soaks up all the salsa flavor but you could definitely use chicken or beef as well. And if you are thinking about meal prep, this taco filling is the perfect thing. It just gets more flavorful after few nights in the fridge and pairs great with rice and veggies for a homemade taco bowl.
