Mexican Salsa Verde Recipe

Salsa verde is a type of green salsa which you will find at virtually any Mexican restaurant, lunch counter or sidewalk taco cart; you are more than likely already familiar with this salsa. While it is a popular variety of salsa, it is not one, which many of us make at home, at least not in the United States.

However, the ingredients to make this wonderful salsa right in your own kitchen are widely available, so there is nothing stopping you from making this terrific Mexican salsa verde recipe and enjoying it on chips, tacos, really anything that you would have any type of salsa with. With a recipe as good as this one, you will definitely want to find more uses for salsa as well.

Salsa verde is made from tomatillos, a fruit which is a member of the nightshade family like tomatoes, to which they are closely related. While they were once rare in US grocery stores and produce markets, they can now be bought fresh almost everywhere. One note here: although you can also find canned tomatillos, do not use them for this recipe. The flavor of fresh tomatillos is so far superior to the canned variety that there is absolutely no reason not to go with fresh fruit for this recipe.

Authentic Salsa Verde

new-pictureSummary: coming soon


  • 8 tomatillos
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno seeded and roughly chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • a pinch of sugar
  • salt, to taste


  1. The best salsa verde is always made with oven-roasted tomatillos, so begin by cutting your tomatillos in half (after removing their papery husks, of course) and broiling them cut side down on a foil lined pan until their skins begin to char, about 6-7 minutes.
  2. You can broil both sides if you prefer.
  3. The rest is pretty easy (assuming you have a food processor or a blender handy, that is).
  4. Pulse your ingredients other than the salt until smooth, season with salt to taste and pulse once more before refrigerating.
  5. Although you can serve the salsa right away and there’s nothing wrong with that, you’ll find that your salsa takes on a much better flavor once you’ve given it at least a few hours for its flavors to come together – though with a Mexican salsa verde recipe which is as good as this one, it can be pretty tough to wait.
