This delicious salsa verde recipe is the perfect way to spice things up and cool down at the same time!
Isn't that crazy? Instead have having baskets full of bell peppers, we have baskets of tomatillos. But it's been a nice surprise because I love salsa verde, and apparently so does my husband. He can hardly wait for my food processor to stop before finishing almost the whole bowl of salsa verde by himself.
Is Salsa Verde Spice?
How spicy your salsa verde recipe ends up being is entirely up to you. You like it so spicy that your face turns red - use LOTS of jalapeno. If you only like a little bit of a kick, rinse your jalapeno after you remove the seeds and only use a little bit.
How to Make Salsa Verde
Salsa verde is suuuuuuuuuper easy to make. Tomatillos, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, and salt get blended up together and you have yummy salsa verde in less than a minute.
I wish you could smell this! It's amazingly fresh and light.
I can't handle too much heat, so I only use a little bit of jalapeno. Or, if I know the kids are going to be eating chips and dip, I'll leave the jalapeno out all together. The nice thing about a sauce like this is that you can adjust any of the flavors to your liking. Sometimes I go really heavy on the cilantro and lime juice.
Since it was just me and the hubby enjoying this salsa verde, jalapeno was included. Here's a word of advice: when using jalapenos in a recipe, make sure to thoroughly wash your hands before rubbing your eyes. Unless of course you're a total weirdo, and enjoy the sensation of your eyeballs feeling like they're on fire. In case you're wondering - yes, I accidentally rubbed my eyes.
Anyhoo, this salsa verde belongs in your life ASAP. It's so delicious! I'm going to head out to the garden to go pick some tomatillos to make more salsa verde right now.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and let me know how your's turns out.
