This recipe is so easy and once you make roasted salsa verde, you’ll want to put it on everything! 

Authentic Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde


We eat so much Mexican inspired meals. I’m slowly adding more and more Mexican (Tex-Mex? Mexican Southern? my version of Mexican…) recipes to my repertoire. Sauces, well, technically this is a salsa, are so easy to make, but the last thing I usually tackle. However, this recipe is simple and you know I love making sauces and seasonings so I can control the salt. 

Tomatillo Salsa Verde is good over enchiladas instead of red sauce, omelets, and with tortilla chips. As well, it’s great over grilled chicken, chicken and rice bowls, and Fajita Chicken Bowls. It’s also good with Dutch Oven Birria tacos and quesadillas.

    A tomatillo plant grew out of my compost so I was blessed with more tomatillos than I knew what to do with. I made this salsa a bunch of times and it’s so good I never get tired of it. I put it on everything from burgers to omelettes.

    Oh my goodness, this was so good! I found tomatillos at a local stand and decided to try a recipe on a whim. I’m so happy I found this one, it was so perfect!
