Homemade salsa verde is a classic Mexican green salsa that is bursting with flavor. This easy salsa is made with tomatillos, jalapenos, cilantro, onions, and garlic. Tastes great on tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and more!
What you need:
- 1.5 lbs tomatillos, husked and washed
- 1/2 onion, quartered
- 3 unpeeled garlic cloves
- 2 jalapenos
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (more to taste)
- 1/3 cup cilantro
- 1 lime (more to taste)
Turn on your broiler and get it nice and hot. Place the whole peeled tomatillos, garlic, jalapenos, and quartered onion pieces in a shallow baking dish or rimmed baking sheet.
Place the whole peeled tomatillos, garlic, jalapenos, and quartered onion pieces in a shallow baking dish. and roast under the broiler for about 10 minutes, turning half way, until vegetables are charred on the outside.
Take them out of the oven and let them cool for about 10 minutes. Pull the stems from the jalapenos, Remove the peel from the garlic, it should just squeeze out. Add everything into a blender. Make sure to also add the juices from the baking dish that seeped out during cooking.
Add the cilantro, salt, and lime juice to the blender as well. Blend to your desired consistency. I prefer a smoother salsa, but you can also just pulse a few times for a thick and chunky salsa. It should keep for between 5-7 days.
We hope you enjoy this delicious Salsa Verde recipe.
