Salsa Verde is so great because it is so versatile! It can be used as a salsa for dipping tortilla chips in, it can be used to make enchiladas, you can smother a burrito in it or you can drizzle it over a tostada. Whatever you choose to do with it you’re sure to have a delicious dish.
I’ve always just bought the canned stuff thinking that making up a homemade batch would be too much work, but I am happy to say that making homemade Salsa Verde is actually really easy because basically all you need to do is prepare the ingredients, boil them for a bit, and then put them into a blender! Sure, simply opening a can of the stuff is easier, but this isn’t that much more difficult to make it homemade and it’s totally fresh with no weird preservatives.
- 1 pound tomatillos, husked and washed
- 1/2 cup chopped white onion
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 jalepeno pepper minced (add another if you want a hotter salsa)
- 3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups water
Place all of the ingredients including the water into a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 10 minutes, just until the tomatillos soften. Carefully pour about 1/4 or 1/3 of the mixture at a time into your blender and puree until smooth so that you don’t overwhelm your blender and make a big mess.
As I mentioned, use the salsa to dip chips into or make a nice big batch of enchiladas with it! The options are endless.
