Salsa Verde

Salsa Verde | Homan at Home

The produce group strikes again! I have never been the personal owner of tomatillos, but several of our baskets this last few months have had tomatillos in them. And they never just put a couple in — there’s always 10+. The first time, I wasn’t sure what to do with them. Now, I look forward to seeing them in the basket, because this salsa verde recipe is something to be excited about.

I’ll admit, I actually didn’t know that salsa verde was made from tomatillos. I thought it got it’s green color from the chilies in it. I also have never been the biggest fan of the store-bought salsa verde. This recipe is based on one from Gimme Some Oven, only modified to use spices from my spice drawer.

I do love this stuff, though. I also love that I can control the heat and the flavor — that’s the best part of making food at home!

This salsa verde works wonderfully as a dip for veggies or chips, but it would also go great with some tacos, on eggs, or in any dish that calls for this green goodness!
