"Hi! I hope you enjoy this real, Mexican salsa from Morelos, Mexico. This is my husband's recipe; we use it for taquitos, huevos rancheros, pork, chicken, or just for dipping!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Update - still make this a couple of times a month and know it will be a hit at my SuperBowl party - thanks again for this true keeper! ... Excellent and authentic! I added a bit of cilantro and a small onion (humoring the backseat cook bf: "salsa w/o onion?!"), and it looked as good as it tasted. Next time I may use serranos, etc. to add some heat, depending on the company. Thanks very much for sharing!
I didn't love this one. I thought it was lacking in flavor. But to be fair, a good salsa is only as good as your tomatoes- perhaps I am not a good judge of tomatillos when it comes to salsa verde.
I finally have found the best green salsa. I have tried many and they were never the ones. This is the best I have ever found. Just made it and followed the directions which rarely do, only guidlines. Did add 1/2 small onion and 1/2 bunch of cilantro. Tried it and was great, wife tried it and thought it was the bomb and couldn't stop eating it, even got a slice of bagget out and tried it on that. She said it could use a little sugar, added 1 pinch was good added 1 more pinch and it is a keeper. This will be the only salsa i make from now on. Thanks for this one.
This recipe is great for chip dipping as well as for use as a marinade. We used it to marinade chicken breasts and they turned out really juicy and flavorful. It also worked wonders on a pork loin we grilled. I'd suggest soaking the meat over night for full effect.
I usually make tomatillo salsa with cilantro, but used this recipe because I didn't have any... totally different flavor, I love it! Very sour and spicy! I used 5 tiny hot peppers instead of jalapenos... VERY spicy, not for the faint of heart. Great recipe, thank you!
¡Qué Rico! I had a "cambio de galletas" (cookie exchange) this weekend and made a batch of this as a mojo to have with some chilaquiles. Lovely flavor! I have a lot left over and I am putting it on everything...my vegetables, my meats, etc. Thank you!
This is so easy to make. Hot and spicy! I couldn't resist and added a little onion powder to the mix in the blender. Maybe it would have been milder if I had seeded my large jalapeno first. Thanks for sharing this recipe! 4.5 stars
very good salsa. I used 1 lb fresh tomatillos (6 small tomatillos), husked and rinsed, 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, 3 cloves garlic, peeled, no cloves, dash of cumin, a pinch of rock salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. did not need to add any chicken bouillon granules. Also, I placed all of these ingredients on a baking sheet along with half of a white onion, rough chopped, roasted them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until they were real soft. Threw them into a blender, added a bunch of fresh local grown cilantro, pureed them, squeezed half of a lime juice and added more salt if needed. I served this with, "Carne Asada Taco," "Spanish Rice," from this site, and also with beans.
