Deliciosa Salsa Verde

Rated as 4.79 out of 5 Stars

"Broiling the tomatillos gives this salsa a subtly smoky taste. If you are sensitive to spicy food, remove the seeds from the peppers. This salsa is perfect as both a dip for taco chips and to top enchiladas suizas."

Pretty good but recommend roasting everything and then puree with a diced avocado, the avocado is the key. Killer on everything but especially good on pork carnitas!

Best salsa verde I've ever made! Got A LOT of compliments.

This salsa is tasty but a little too spicy for me even though I didn't use the Serrano pepper and used 2 jalapenos from some that I had canned. I also like my salsa a little thicker. Next time ...

I also roast everything except for the cilantro, along with 5-6 cloves of garlic. I've never added the sugar, and haven't noticed it missing. Tastes great on anything!
