This is great with any tacos. My mother-in-law is from Mexico and showed me how to make this. I only added a few more things to make it better.

Directions

  1. Place the tomatillos, serrano peppers, onion, and garlic in a saucepan, and add water to just cover. Sprinkle the salt over the top, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the tomatillos are soft and have turned slightly brownish in color, 20 to 30 minutes. Add more water if needed to keep the mixture from burning as it cooks.
  2. Pour the cooked vegetables into a blender, and blend until smooth.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Great salsa! For a different spin on it, try oven broiling the tomatillos, peppers, onion and garlic until slightly charred. Then puree. I usually add some chopped fresh cilantro and a couple squeezes of lime juice too!

This is my salsa verde. I noticed the amount of water need in this recipe is missing, you should start with 1 cup of water, it shoud be absorbed by the time the tomatillos are golden brown. Also some people like to add 1 bunch of chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. But I like mine just how it is. Also if you want a smoother version you could put it through the strainer after you blend it to get the seeds out. Also if you dont want it that spicy you can use different chilies. Jalapenos work well. Also, do not drain the water, it should be mostly absorbed by the time your tomatillos are browned.

I made the recipe as written, & I thought it was bland & salty. That's why I'm giving it 3 Stars as written. Maybe it's b/c I'm Mexican, so I've tasted a lot of salsa since I was a young child. I add it to almost anything! But this salsa wasn't spicy. It was salty and that's not the way salsa should be, correct me if I'm wrong. However, I thought it had potential, & after the changes I made, it's now a 5 in my house. I make it quite often. Here are the changes: I use 18 serrano chile peppers, 2 Jalapenos, about 3/4 cup of cilantro, garlic stays the same except I add it when I blend the veggies (the amount of onion & tomatillos also remains the same), and I definitely did not add 2 TBS of salt(Unless you like salty salsa)! That is crazy! I added 1 TEASPOON of salt WHILE I blended all the ingredients. I was much more satisfied with the salsa after I made the changes. Oh, after the veggies are done, drain them, then blend. The recipe neglects to say that.
