What Is Salsa Verde?
Salsa Verde originated from Mexico and is a green salsa, usually tomatillo based (unlike a red tomato based salsa). It is usually used as a chip dip or on tacos (I also love it on enchiladas, fajitas, tostadas and chimichangas!)
This is a roasted version of green salsa – nothing overly roasted or too far blackened for my liking, just a fair char on two sides. Then just add everything to a food processor a give it a few quick blitzes, easy as can be.
I definitely prefer this roasting method over the raw versions or boiled versions. This is my idea of the BEST salsa verde!
It’s one of my go-to snacks and toppings, try it and and you’ll see why!
