Salsa De Tomatillo

Rating: 4.5 stars 174
This is the 'salsa de tomatillo' that I grew up with. It can be used as a sauce for grilled chicken, fish or shrimp, as the basis for green chilaquiles (pour over tortilla chips, shredded cooked chicken and shredded Monterey Jack, then heat under the broiler), and as a dipping sauce for chips. Delicioso!

Green Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 115
A tasty and tangy salsa that may be used for cooking or on top of Mexican-style foods! Adjust the amount of jalapeno to taste.

Salsa Costena

Rating: 5 stars 2
This exciting salsa is bursting with flavor! If costeno chile peppers are not available, try substituting de arbol peppers -- they work just as well! This spicy salsa is great with fish, meat or chicken.

Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 141
Tomatillos, lots of garlic and spicy jalapenos charred under the broiler give this salsa a rich, earthy flavor. If you like your salsa very hot, added roasted Jamaican scotch bonnets instead of the jalapeno.

Three Chile Dry Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 37
A wonderful vegan Three Chile Tomatillo Salsa. The tomatillos and chiles are dry roasted (slightly blackened) in an iron skillet giving it a wonderful flavor. Great for green chilaquiles.

This is great, green salsa that everyone asks me to make. I have made it several times and just recently had the best batch ever!

Hi! I hope you enjoy this real, Mexican salsa from Morelos, Mexico. This is my husband's recipe; we use it for taquitos, huevos rancheros, pork, chicken, or just for dipping!

Salsa de Tomatillos Como Las Asadas y Big Star

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
A super-flavorful salsa inspired by the great taquerias in Bucktown and Wicker park, in Chicago. Restaurant-style tomatillo salsa, a good change of pace from standard tomato salsa. Includes roasted peppers and the unstoppable combination of garlic, lime and cilantro.

Deliciosa Salsa Verde

Rating: 5 stars 45
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.

This authentic Mexican salsa verde has a fabulous flavor. Use it on chicken enchiladas or as a condiment for any dish that needs a little extra zip!

Avocado Tomatillo Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
This spectacularly simple green sauce may be the perfect summer condiment. It requires no cooking, only takes 10 to 15 minutes to make, looks gorgeous, and tastes amazing with anything grilled and most things that aren't. Spoon over grilled pork tacos, grilled meats, or serve with chips.

This is great with any tacos. My mother-in-law is from Mexico and showed me how to make this. I only added a few more things to make it better.
