The ingredients were right on. The best flavor comes when you slightly blacken the tomatillos & jalapenos under the broiler, then mix all your ingredients. If you don't have shallots, use 1 white onion (slightly blacken this also). Read More

Wanted to use up some green tomatoes from the garden so used this recipe. Instead of tomatillos I substituted the green tomatoes. Turned out delicious. Since I seldom have green tomatoes I'll use tomatillos next time. Read More

I was looking for a green salsa to put on chicken burritos and this salsa was perfect. I had to use canned tomatillos because I couldn't find fresh but it was still delicious and even better the next day! I would recomment adding 1 or 2 teaspoons of kosher salt. A great recipe and easy too. Thank you! Read More

Four stars for the ingredients. White onion is better and you have to add lime juice for that little extra jolt. Tomatillos are best for salsa when they've been roasted, this goes for the garlic, onion, and peppers too. Very east, just lay out on a cookie sheet and put under the broiler until the veges begin to look charred. Turn the veges over and let char on the other side. Remove from broiler and add veges to the food processor and chop. Add lime juice to taste and a little kosher salt too. DELISH!! Read More

This was fresh tangy and flavorful. I skipped the shallots doubled the green chiles cilantro and jalapeno and added 2 finely diced large avocados and a couple Tbs lime juice (for flavor and to keep the avocado from browning). Taking the seeds out of the jalapenos left the salsa without any heat at all so as a personal preference next time I'll just leave them in to get a little spice. Read More

This recipe is amazing - I organize and cook for 20-30 people once a week and this has been a favorite. However it only gets 4 stars because I added avocado to thicken it up - it made a much better chip dip that way. Also a dash of pepper helped. Thanks for the awesome recipe; will definitely use again! Read More
