We are gearing up for Cinco de Mayo this year with a quick and easy salsa verde recipe! This Mexican salsa recipe is the perfect addition to any Cinco de Mayo menu and only requires a few ingredients.
To make this recipe, you’ll need:
- 6 tomatillos
- 2 jalapenos
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 of a white onion
- 1/2 of a lime
- 1/2 a bunch of cilantro
- Salt and Pepper
Start by preheating your oven to 400° F. Peel the husks off your tomatillos and slice in half. Trim the stems off the jalapenos and slice in half, you can take the seeds and veins of the peppers at this point if desired. Coat the tomatillos, jalapenos, and onion in olive oil and roast for 30 – 35 minutes.
Take out of the oven and let cool down. Put everything in a blender, along with your garlic, lime juice, and cilantro. Blend until you reach the desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with tortilla chips, tacos, burritos or chilaquiles!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
