Tomatillo Salsa

BY : PUBLISHED : February 24th, 2014 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

Everyday is a party when salsa is involved. I’m a huge baby and can’t handle too much spiciness so feel free to add some hotter chilies. I did all my shopping at Superior Market and it was all under $5 and I had a few tomatillos and a lime left over. I cooked all the stuff in a sauce pan but you could also roast them in the oven or over the fire if you have a gas stove.  This is perfect for Cinco de March. Oh wait…

If you're up for it, try roasting the tomatillos over a flame or in the oven to boost this salsa even more.
