Today we are going to make some Salsa Verde. It's pretty tasty and goes good with chips, and even better on carne asada.
This is a recipe I learned from a Mexican friend of mine in Houston, Tx. In classic Mexican cooking fashion, I never wrote it down and am doing it from memory seven years later.
What makes this salsa green in the use of tomatillos (toe-maw-tea-ohs, which, by the way, are NOT green tomatoes For more info: Tomatillos!
). They have a great flavor that many people have yet to experience that is very different from tomato based salsa. Hopefully its love at first bite for you, as it was fro me.Take ownership of your salsa!
Friends, cooking can be an art or a science. Let's make it an art. Feel free to change this suggested recipe as you like. Want more kick? Throw in some more jalepe�os. Take ownership for your salsa and make it your own. Most of all though, eat well and enjoy life.
