Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Tomatillo Salsa Verde, tangy spicy super flavorful, incredibly versatile & this simple man`s plan to healthier eating today! If you`ve been following Chile and Salt you know I`m a bit salsa obsessed. Ok not a bit, A LOT! There are typically at least 2-3 different salsas in my fridge at all times & 4-5 are not uncommon. In addition to being just plain delicious this as are most Mexican salsas are gluten free, dairy free, low fat & low calorie for anyone with dietary restrictions. Serve this as is with tortilla chips, a vegetable crudite platter, cucumber rounds, add to soups or stews, fish, grilled meats or use as a simmering sauce in Pollo en Salsa Verde (chicken), Puerco en Salsa Verde (pork). The list goes on for days. If you happen to be new to the kitchen there`s another plus as well, if you can boil water you can make this fantastic salsa. It`s really that easy! Here`s what you`ll need for your Tomatillo Salsa Verde:
8-10 Tomatillos
2-3 Serrano Chiles-seeded & deveined optional, I left mine because I like the heat.
4-5 Garlic Cloves
1 Onion- rough chop
1 Bunch Cilantro
2 Limes
Salt- 1 teaspoonTomatillo Salsa Verde1The players today.Tomatillo Salsa Verde2

Tomatillos have papery skins on the outside. They`ll peel right off. After removing give them a good wash to remove that sticky substance on the outside.Tomatillo Salsa Verde3

Roughly chop the onion, peel the garlic & remove the stems from the serrano`s. Seed & devein if you want less heat. I like it so I left mine.Tomatillo Salsa Verde4

Add the tomatillos, garlic, onion & peppers to a sauce pan & cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer & cook for about 10 minutes.Tomatillo Salsa Verde5

Remove to a blender cup with a slotted spoon. Add a teaspoon of salt & the lime juice.Tomatillo Salsa Verde7

Add the cilantro & let the blender do it`s thing. Blend until smooth. As always be careful when blending anything hot.
