I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for some
Salsa Verde and chips!
Yes, yes I am.
Okay, so there are a few salsas out there that I will hover over with the chips bowl near by. This, THIS Salsa Verde, is on that list my friend. The top of that list!
The Tomatillo, is that husky little green tomato is the tasty ingredient that gives this salsa the fresh, tart flavor and makes it so wonderful.
Making Salsa Verde is crazy easy. You can make the recipe in double or triple batches, canning a few jars (if you’re into that sort of thing), giving them to your friends and family, or
hoarding keeping them stored in the refrigerator for yourself … hoarding.
The first time I remember having Salsa Verde was many moons ago. I was at a friends house in Mexico, enjoying life, eating the best food ever … taking dance classes (as you do) and meeting new friends. One night we were to have a simple light dinner, breakfast for dinner that is, the menu: fluffy scrambled eggs served on a hot tortilla and salsa verde. I was hooked. It was so ridiculously easy and perfectly yum, that I spent many a meal since enjoying that same dish.
You can enjoy this salsa on all of your favorite Mexican/Tex-Mex … anything you want a hit of salsa on.
