"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 is the recipe I use for my Salsa Verde!! Only thing I do different roast everything & I also add a few garlic heads, too!! The best salsa!! IThe sugar helps with the acidity. Freezes well, too~~My 15 yr old son will eat this straight out of the bowl.
This is a very good recipe. Its easy to follow and easy to make. Now, I do roast all my peppers and a glove of garlic on top of the suggested recipe.
Remember when you are roasting: to take the pepper out of the oven then choke it in a Ziplock baggie. Do that for a min or two, then you can literally scrape out any seeds and the charred outside. You should scrape the outside because that burnt area is very bitter.
I combine this recipe with a personal recipe for salsa.
Very easy and of so good! This is great on nachos or enchiladas or just with some good tortilla chips. Thanks - this recipe is a keeper. I made this for Faceless Frenzy July 2012 - so glad I did, thanks!
This is the first time I've made salsa Verdi . This recipe is wonderful and easy! Never buy store bought again!
Pretty good but recommend roasting everything and then puree with a diced avocado, the avocado is the key. Killer on everything but especially good on pork carnitas!
We can't get enough of this! I grew two big tomatillo plants in my garden this year, but I plan on growing 4 next year just to have plenty of tomatillos to make this salsa. This is very easy to make in a food processor. I used a little more cilantro and a little more onion. A half-teaspoon of salt is good too, but not necessary.
I also roast everything except for the cilantro, along with 5-6 cloves of garlic. I've never added the sugar, and haven't noticed it missing. Tastes great on anything!
My husband used to buy tamales and green sauce from a coworker. We loved the sauce. This recipe tastes just like the sauce his coworker made. It is easy to make and delicious. Thanks for sharing:)
