Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde


Monday for Memorial day, everyone in the family kinda did their own thing, and we didn’t even really eat together. So apparently my grilled turkey burgers weren’t happening. Too bad, because I was definitely looking forward to the salsa.  So since we are having tacos tonight, I decided to make it today with 1000 other things.  Started with cooking bone-in chicken in a stock pot with veggies for an hour.  I bagged the chicken broth for future recipes and used the shredded chicken and split it up for dinners in the future.  Helped that the chicken was only $1.50/pack.

Then the salsa! Grilling the 1 lb of tomatillos and 2-3 jalapenos (depends on the spice level you want.)

Grill them nice and crispy with great char marks on them!

After that bring them in the house.  This is the easy part.  Throw everything else in the food processor.   Tomatillos, jalapenos, and fresh cilantro out of the garden. YUM!

Process until smooth salsa texture.

Then chill before serving.  The salsa is in the fridge right now.  Tastes delicious and can’t wait to try it on the tacos tonight.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

serves 2 Cups

1 lb tomatillos (husked)

2-3 jalapenos

a bunch of cilantro

juice of one lime


Heat the grill.  Husk the tomatillos.  Place all tomatillos and jalapenos on the grill.  Grill until charred on all sides and mushy.  This could take anywhere from 5-15 minutes depending on your grill.  Once charred bring inside and place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend til smooth.  Chill before serving.

Love this recipe, quick, easy, delicious!
