Tomatillo Salsa

dips and spreads recipes May 13, 2020

We love the Salsa Verde at Trader Joe's but did you know it's super easy to make your own? This is our copycat version that is SO simple with just a handful of ingredients. Make sure you wash the tomatillos after you remove their skins. (They have a sticky, soapy residue.) We're spooning this Tomatillo Salsa on our Week 16 Chimichurri Vegetable Enchiladas (try us free here) but here are just a few other ways you could eat it: on fajitas, with tortillas chips, in quesadillas, on burritos, in tacos, on taquitos...just about anything!

Tomatillo Salsa

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 5 minutes 

Makes 2 cups

 

Ingredients:

1 pound tomatillos (about 8), husked and rinsed

4 cloves garlic

1 jalapeño, sliced in half and seeded

½ white onion, quartered

juice of 1 ½ limes

½ tsp salt

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. On a baking sheet, lay the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeño and onion. Place in the broiler for 5 minutes, until the vegetables are charred.
  3. Remove from the oven and place them in a food processor along with the lime juice and salt. Process until smooth.

 

Spoiler Alert: Tomatillo Salsa will stay fresh in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
