This citrusy salsa is flavored with canned chilies, garlic, salt and vinegar. The time it takes to open a can of tomatillos and pour it in a food processor is how long it takes to make this tomatillo salsa. Just add four more ingredients, process and you’re done!
Tomatillo is an under utilized ingredient in my opinion. The canned variety is a handy ingredient to have in your pantry.
This citrusy-like fruit is sour if harvested early in the season and sweeter/seedier if harvested late. The sour tomatillo is a popular ingredient in salsa verde. The later can be used as a tomato substitute.
This easy salsa came out of a need for a quick and easy condiment for my Flautas and Molitas.
I keep a small can of this amazing Mexican fruit for last minute salsa or to add some zip to a soup. You can add on to this recipe or tweak it to your tastes. Salsas are very forgiving that way. You can use less tomatillos and keep the rest of the ingredients the same and you will still have a great salsa. It will be less citrusy and more peppery. So don’t be afraid to experiment to your tastes. It’s fun!
