1 Jalapeño or serrano pepper

Fresh cilantro (30 Stems)

1 1/2 Tbsp lime or lemon juice

*adjust salt and citrus to taste for all recipes

*salt amounts will vary if you are using regular table salt

*Spice lovers add an extra 1 or 2 peppers to bring the heat ?

*Tomatillos have a lot of pectins, when you refrigerate you’ll notice the salsa gets thicker. Not to worry! Just mix and continue with your salsa : )

About Salsa Verde

Salsa verde (lit. ’ green sauce’) is a type of spicy, green sauce in Mexican cuisine based on tomatillo and green chilli peppers.

The tomatillo-based Mexican salsa verde dates to the Aztec Empire, as documented by the Spanish physician Francisco Hernández, and is distinct from the various medieval European parsley-based green sauces.

In the cuisines of Mexico and the Southwestern United States, it is often served with Mexican or Tex-Mex style dishes like enchiladas and chicharrón (pork rinds). The version typical of New Mexico consists mostly of green chile rather than tomatillos.


This green sauce comes in subtypes: cooked sauce, in which the ingredients are cooked and then ground; roasted salsa, in which the elements are roasted on a comal and then ground; raw sauce, in which ingredients are ground and eaten without cooking; and a combination in which some of the elements are cooked. A molcajete or a blender can be used for the grinding process. Cooking or roasting the tomatillo will enhance the flavour, providing a sweeter salsa.  After the sauce is prepared, it can be cooked again in a pan with a little oil.
